Navigation and tidal planning

Navigation and tidal planning are great tools for planning your trips. In many places you will find that tides play a big effect in your trip; Tides can cause current, skookumchucks, tidal races, shallow beaches and expose reefs. All these can be fun, crazy or hard according to your experience level.
