2015 Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book

A fundamental resource for navigation, Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book supplies critical tidal data for navigation. This captain's companion holds data regarding tidal current flow, velocity, direction and tide charts that are the key to informed piloting. Use this resource in conjunction with up to date charts to predict draft in harbor entrances or to ride the tidal flow to your destination port.

Eldridge was first written in 1854 by cartographer George Eldridge of Chatham, and has been continuously in print since 1875. The Tide and Pilot Book was compiled with son, Capt. George W. Eldridge, and covers the entire east coast, with particularly superior coverage of the northeast. This piloting companion also includes a light list, weather information, and much more. Highly recommended for any east coast navigator.

          Comments about 2015 Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book:

          This is THE book to have if you're paddling in the NYC area. I planned a circumnavigation of Manhattan using the charts and tables in this book and they were unbelievably accurate. Don't know about other areas, but I would assume they are equally accurate.

              Eldridge has long been my primary reference on tides, lights, and currents. I can't imagine cruising eastern New England without this outstanding source of data.

                Essential for planning a cruise or a race, especially in Buzzards and Narragansett Bays. A great quick reference when actual conditions / events vary from the plan. I have wished for some time that the conciseness of the BB / NB information could be extended north and east to Marblehead, Casco and Penobscot Bays.
