The Ocean Clocks Tides of Maine Tide Time Clock
is a unique and easy to read tide clock indicating high tide and tidal state for ports on the coast of Maine.
Once set this region specific tide clock acts as a tide chart displaying the High Tide times and Tidal time
differences between the major ports and waterways of Maine and New Hampshire (periodic adjustment needed).
During the 90ís, Ocean Clocks had an idea that would enhance the standard tide clock
currently produced today by offering a tide clock that would display High Water
at the major and minor ports of local regions. If you have checked your local tide
time tables you will see that the high tide times will differ from port to port. There
is a time difference from one port to another as the tide makes its way around the
coastline. In some regions the tide difference between one port to another can be as
much as 6 hours stretching over the length of the State or regional coast. This could
be due to many factors such as local land masses, estuaries, currents and ocean basins.
The calculation of these time differences will generally not change except under the
influence of bad weather. Over the many years that Ocean Clocks have been developing their
clocks, they have collected and plotted data from around the world. This data aids
in calculating the correct time difference of the high tide related
to the port angles situated on the face.
The blue tide hand on the Ocean Clocks Tide Time Clock is designed to track the moon's orbit
to approximately predict the tides. The tide time differences between all of the ports
have been calculated to predict the high tides before and after the major port in your
