Buy Tide Tables Online

tide tables

For several years we have produced pocket-sized tide tables made available for purchase through the Tide Times website. Each book was designed, printed and assembled by us, year in, year out, and for a while things were great.

Regretfully, things were so great that I personally started suffering from Repetitive Strain Injury for the first time ever. Age catches up to us all eventually, and the demands of assembling those thousands of books every year - both the physical aches and the time required at the computer - have started to prove a bit much.

While we still design each book we have offloaded the printing and delivery to Amazon's print-on-demand service, CreateSpace. This allows us to increase both the size and quality of the prints as well as meet demand at all levels. Since the books are now larger, we've been able to add Sunrise and Sunset times as some customers requested. Even the covers have improved. While they're not completely waterproof, they are slightly more resistant.

The improvements have their own costs and in most cases we have stuck to the minimum requirements: the books are the smallest size available; the number of pages is almost as low as it can be and the price is as low as Amazon will allow. Sadly that price is noticeably higher than the previous product, and shipping has increased too.

You can still add your tide table purchases to the shopping cart on this website as before, however you will now be redirected to Amazon when you go to complete the transaction. Any enquiries you have about your order should similarly be directed there, by logging in to your Amazon account and querying the status of your order.

We understand that these changes make our product less affordable and that some customers may decide that the increases are too much. We'd like to thank those of you who have stayed with us so far, and we hope you continue to use and enjoy our tide books in the future.

All the best,
