Comparing Tide Prints and Current Charts shows the locations of eddies and bands of current, and how these bands and eddies move and interact as the current cycle evolves.

These are both perpetual publications, good for any year.
Tide data at Seattle and current data at Admiralty Inlet (off Bush Pt) and at Tacoma Narrows (north end), are needed to assign specific times to each page of these charts and prints.
