Tide Times
 
     
Norfolk broads tide time table and info   Relative Low Water Times
the broads rivers are tidal, the tide rising and falling twice in every 25 hours approximately. Generally the outgoing tide (the "ebb") lasts longer than the incoming tide (the "flood"). The tidal effect is most noticeable near Gt. Yarmouth, where the broads flow out to sea, and here the tidal rise and fall can be up to 2 meters. Tidal streams near Gt. Yarmouth can run at around 4mph, as you go further up river the tides are less noticeable.
It saves time and fuel and makes less wash to go with the tide, not against it. At Gt. yarmouth there are low bridges which may delay you if the tide is very high. The best time for passing through gt. yarmouth is within one hour before or after the low water times shown below, you will have the best headroom under the bridges and your boat will be easier to manage. slack water (when the current is still , at the change of tides) occurs about 1 hour after the times given
  Approximate low water times at other locations may be easily calculated by adding the hours given in the list to the times of low water at gt. yarmouth yacht station listed below.
