Mr. Tides


Welcome to Mr. Tides!

A little humor about the importance of checking the tides:

Mr. Tides is designed for the Macintosh. It does not work on iOS, nor can you download it using an iPad or iPhone.
For the iPhone, please look at
AyeTides. For the iPad, we have AyeTides XL.

Mr. Tides has been updated to version 4.2.0. We’ve fixed a number of issues, including:
  • Updated all of the NOAA stations
  • Fixed printing the calendar
  • Fixed a bug when the units on a currents station wouldn’t change.

If you have problems downloading Mr. Tides, please try a different browser. We’ve had reports of issues when downloading the app, but we’ve not been able to pinpoint the problem. Using a different browser may help. If you do encounter a problem with the download, please contact us so we can try to resolve the issue. Thanks!

Important note!

We are having immense difficulties with the Sparkle updater that we use to deliver update notices to you. Sparkle will consistently fail to install the update on your Mac. This is because we are following Apple’s guidelines for security, and Sparkle cannot function properly with a sandboxed app like Mr. Tides. We are investigating possible solutions, but for now the only alternative is for you to manually download the update, unzip the archive, and drag the new version to where the old version is.

The main day view can show a great deal of information, in one easy view. You can see the day’s tides (or currents, if you select a current station), set a marker line to know when the tide hits a certain value, slide the target along the graph to show the value at any time, select to show up to 4 days at a time, and more.

The calendar views shows the entire month at a glance. Clicking on a day will open that day. Moon phases are shown as well.

One of the significant updates has been to station selection. The old pixelated satellite images have been replaced with a dynamic vector-based map. Zooming in and out is supported, as is region selection and dragging. Clicking on the station (T for tide, C for current) opens that station.

There is much more to Mr. Tides as well. We encourage you to explore the various views and see what each offers!

Mr. Tides is shareware and is not restricted in any way.
