      Hi All,

      Looking for advice from the more experienced among you. I cant find information about the tide direction around the top of Hidden Island. I assume it ebbs east and floods west? If this is true then there must be a tidal split somewhere heading into yampi sound which seems to ebb north west and floods south east? Any advice on these presumptions would be greatly appreciated.

      Cheers Mark

        Thanks Steve,

        I suspected that would be the case. It means somewhere in Yampi sound there must be a tidal split as the tide ebbs to the NW past Koolan Island and the the NE out of King Sound. Thanks for the Information. Cheers Mark
