In and Out with the Tide - Boat Trader BlogClick here for a printable version of the tide wheel. Not surprisingly, figuring out what the tide is doing in New York Harbor can be a challenge, especially when you take into account the phenomenon known as tidal current lag. In most other places in the world, high tide marks the moment when the current switches from flood rising or inbound to ebb falling or outbound. Knowing what the tide is going to do is a simple matter of reading the tide tables; the tide comes in until high tide, then goes out until low tide. Not so in New York Harbor. Depending on the location, the lag between high or low water and the beginning of the flood or ebb can be as much as three hours, which is nearly half the tide cycle high and low tides are typically six and a half hours apart. Kind of hard to read, and lots of page-flipping when planning a trip.
