The tide graph and data are not intended for use in piloting or engineering design. Sailors should consult official tide tables when navigating in shallow waters, ports or in strong tidal currents. The data produced by the Tide Forecaster are not equivalent to or a replacement for the Official Tide Tables as specified in Maritime Rules Part 25:Nautical Charts and Publications (pursuant to Section 36 of the Maritime Transport Act 1994). Engineers should approach relevant NIWA staff for a more rigorous assessment of tide heights.
