About Us

AmericanTides.com is published by Admiralty Software, LLC.  We are a small software company located in Coupeville, Washington State, U.S.A. on beautiful Whidbey Island.

We are pleased to offer to you the same tides information that we use ourselves for over 3,000 U.S. locations in all coastal areas.

Our software engineers are also avid recreational boaters and fisherman and we originally developed beautiful graphical tide charts for our own use and then decided to make them available to others.

Whidbey Island is surrounded on all sides by saltwater with highly variable tides and currents and there are days here where you cannot launch or haul out a boat at many locations at certain tides. This makes accurate and easy to visualize tides information very important.

Our tide charts are unique because they allow you to very easily see an entire year of visual tide graphs and tables for any U.S. location. All times are provided in local observed time, with corrections incorporated for daylight savings and standard times where used. We also include sunrise and sunset times each day as well as the current moon phase.

The data we use is obtained from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The ability to see a whole year's tides at a glance using our tide charts makes it easy to choose the best days and times for boating, fishing, clamming, shrimping, beach walking, and many other saltwater activities.

AmericanTides.com uses NOAA tides data and formulas. While every effort has been made to ensure that this is accurate, the data may contain errors and we make no warranties of its suitability for any purpose and this site should not be used for matters concerning marine safety.
