Tide tables provide predicted times and heights of the high and low waters associated with the vertical movement of the tide. These tables are necessary for obtaining the depth of water under the keel or over a shoal, for anchoring and for establishing appropriate times for beaching a boat.

Current tables provide predicted times for slack water and the times and velocities of maximum current, all of which are associated with the horizontal movement of the tide. This information is necessary for efficient navigation, especially when under sail. It is required when navigating narrow passes or channels that have strong currents and for safety considerations when the wind is against the current. Where strong currents are present with a strong wind opposing the flow, extremely large, steep waves may be generated that can be particularly dangerous to small craft.
