Tide Clocks

Unique tide instruments designed to complement the Chelsea Clock and Barometer collections.

If you're a serious seafarer, you need to know exactly what the water level is doing. Marine tide instruments from Chelsea Clock provide the precision tide-reading accuracy you need in a sophisticated, durable design. These specially-designed clocks let you know when local seas and oceans are at high, middle and low tide. With a marine tide clock, you can also track the amount of time until the tide reaches its peak or valley.

Professional captains and passionate amateur sailors both know that understanding tide flow is important for navigation. This knowledge helps you maximize your sailing speed and avoid beaching your vessel. Fishermen love them too so they know when and where their favorite game fish are biting. Our tide clocks complement the marine clocks we're famous for to give you a complete nautical collection for every voyage. Stay right on top of every tide change and weather pattern using the finest products of their kind.

Precision Tide Gauges

We have an assortment of tide clocks for sale that are finely handcrafted in the U.S. An antique-inspired tide clock such as the Patriot Deck Tide-Time Clock has both a 12-hour time and a tide display on the dial. You can track time and see whether you're at high, mid or low tide all with one easy-to-read wall tide clock. If you want a modern look that has the same sophistication and accuracy as our vintage pieces, order the Carbon Fiber Tide Instrument in Nickel. The face design is part of a complete series that includes a matching clock and barometer.

How to Read a Tide Clock

There are several display options when purchasing a tide clock. Traditional tide instruments count the hours between peak tides with the same precision as a Chelsea clock. The Patriot Deck Tide Instrument counts up and down in three-hour increments. Both the Polaris Tide Gauge and Carbon Fiber tide reader, on the other hand, count down between high and low tides with an elegant watch styling that is truly timeless. Patriot tide-time clocks have both regular 12-hour time and tide time on a single display. Each is based on the "lunar day" that controls the tide cycles around the globe.

All Chelsea tide clocks are calibrated at the factory for reading East Coast semi-daily tide patterns. However, if you live on the West Coast or an area with a single daily tide cycle (such as the Gulf of Mexico), you can reset the gauge using our blog post on How to Set a Tide Clock. On average, a marine tide clock needs to be reset every four months.

The Best Tidings on Any Voyage

Get a tidal clock or gauge that you can count on by shopping with Chelsea Clock. These instruments are made of the finest durable materials such as solid brass, carbon fiber and phenolic resin. If you truly want an all-in-one solution, order the Master Weather Station that has a clock, tide gauge and barometer in a single wall mount. Our tide instruments have been trusted by the U.S. Navy and other important sailors, and they'll be an important part of your next voyage, too. Chelsea Clock has free shipping and generous warranties on all items plus repair services if needed.
