The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has launched its new Tidal API platform, with expanded coverage for the coastlines of the British Isles and the Republic Ireland, as well as new tidal data information to support mariners in British and Irish waters.

Following extensive research and development by UKHO, the new Tidal API platform is a modernised version of UK Tidal API. This service is the UK’s largest authoritative source of tidal height predictions for standard and secondary tidal level stations, using the most accurate and reliable data to provide tidal predictions to small chart users.

The new offering includes two subscription options which have been upgraded to include tidal data for the Republic of Ireland, in addition to UK waters, as well as the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Tidal API also provides users with the ability to acquire tidal stream information and tidal height graphs.

Foundation access provides a one-year subscription to access current tidal information plus 13 days’ worth of tidal height and stream events. Premium access provides access to historical and current data plus one year's worth of tidal events and interval predictions. Both provide a wide range of tidal height stations and stream locations.
