These predictions are based on the South Port Everglades Tidal Station ​operated by NOAA. This is the closest station that will be fully monitored in 2021. This operational station gives up-to-date tidal information, wind speed/direction and temperature data.                         

In addition, NOAA extrapolates predicted tides throughout various sites in Broward County. In the map below, please click on a station name to be redirected to that station's specific predictions that are offset for height and timing for that location. Note that these predictions are based on gravitational forces only and that offshore weather (winds, currents, and/or storms) often will magnify or diminish predicted tides.
