• Tides \
\
• Port San Luis Obispo tides. Generated at The University of South Carolina's Biological Science Department. Provides textual information of high and low tides at the location for the next 48 hours. There is also provision for producing a graph of predictions for up to a month, although this is time consuming. This server is used for a lot of research projects, and is always busy, so expect to wait a little for your connection. Remember, tide predictions are just that PREDICTIONS. They cannot be relied upon to be 100% accurate.\
• Morro Bay Tides. Also from The University of South Carolina's Biological Science Department\
• West Coast Tides. Select a site from The University of South Carolina's Biological Science Department. Sites are listed from North to South.\
