is our new tide map covering NZ, as well as the Pacific and USA. In addition it has a
monster graph page
and also complete Sun and Moon information.
We've also kept the old Java tide applet
running on this site because we can see from the traffic that some of our faithful visitors prefer this format,
or maybe it just works better on their computers.
Whatever the reason, you can still find it here
Official figures only
We supply reliable and verified tide data. This is why we use figures computed by official government agencies.
How many sites tell you where their tide data comes from? Not many. Maybe their data is accurate and up-to-date,
and maybe it's not; you don't know and neither do we. Be assured that all OceanFun sites use the same data you'll find in the
official tide tables, with a extra processing to make them easier and more interesting to read.
Please be aware that despite the above, our figures are not official
and do not replace the official tables.

West Coast Tidebook Sept 2013 - Sept 2014
There was a printing error in the West Coast Whitebait Regulations.
Page 13 of the previous (2014) tide book should read:
No fishing gear should:
• Include screens exceeding 3 m in total length.
The maximum permitted screen length was incorrectly printed as 6m, and should be 3m.
This means there is no change in the rule from past years - The 3 m rule has been in place historically for
the West Coast of the South Island, and was incorrectly printed in the 2014 edition only.

When to fish is crucial
Ok, so you have your favourite fishing spots, but they don't always work, right? Did you know about best fishing times?
Many years ago John Alden Knight did a great deal of research and figured out exactly when it was that fish and other animals were more inclined
to be active and to feed. We have computed and published these times in a handy little book you can use
to plan your fishing trips.
And yes, these little gems are also available in our online shop.
