The table below shows predicted tide information for
Cape Porpoise Harbor, Maine for the month of October,
2001. Tables like this are generated for locations all
along the coasts of the U.S. The charts for each site
may be very different, even for locations that are quite
close to each other. This is because tides vary according
to the shape and depth of the body of water as well
as to the geographical location.
Tide heights in the table are compared to the average
low water level for that location. A negative tide height
indicates the water level will be below the average
low water line.
