Ports & Passes 2022
For the last 20+ years, close to 7,000 mariners in the U.S. and British Columbia have come to rely on Ports and Passes for reliable and convenient tide and current information. Even in the day of smartphone apps and sophisticated chartplotters, readers like the convenience of being able to pick up the book and quickly look up the correct tide and current information. They realize that not all tide and current information is from reliable sources. Ports and Passes uses official government data updated every year. It is corrected for Daylight Savings Time and presented in an easy to read format.
Ports and Passes is the most complete reference guide for tide and current information along our beautiful coastline. The book is easy to use and includes the majority of the primary and secondary tide and current data stations. It includes tide and current prediction table coverage for the coastal area from Olympia, WA to SE Alaska.

"Ports and Passes provide tide and current data for the entire Pacific Northwest, including all Washington inside waters, British Columbia and SE Alaska. It is the most popular tide and current guide in the Pacific Northwest and has been trusted for more than 20 years by commercial and recreational users alike. But Ports and Passes does not just provide tide and current data. It also helps the reader understand:
· How tides are related to currents
· How currents interact with winds and waves
· The difference between tidal predictions and actual observed tide levels
· How to calculate intermediate tidal heights and intermediate current strength
· How to determine tides and currents at secondary locations
With the cancellation of printed guides from the United States NOAA and Canadian Hydrographic Service, Ports and Passes is the only tide and current guide that combines high- quality tide and current data from official sources with comprehensive Pacific Northwest coverage.

Waggoner/Current Atlas Tables 2022
The annual companion book for the Canadian Hydrographic’s Current Atlas makes it easy to use – just look up the month, day and the hour, and you will be given the appropriate page in the Atlas. The Tables list every hour of every day and are corrected for Daylight Savings Time.

With these two books you can judge what the currents will be for your cruise and adjust accordingly.
For many years now Ports and Passes produced a small white booklet titled “Current Atlas Tables” for use with the Canadian Hydrographic Service Current Atlas. The Waggoner Cruising Guide also produced a larger blue-covered booklet with exactly the same data. This year, Waggoner and Ports and Passes have combined these two booklets. The new version is the “Waggoner / Ports and Passes Current Atlas Tables”. It is a small booklet with a blue cover. The data is exactly the same as in the past, but the presentation may be slightly different.
