WXTide 32 is one of the most popular and simple programs used for the tide and current prediction. It can predict tides from 1970 to 2037 using almost ten thousand stations (including 160 of them located in United Kingdom) and, in addition to that, more than three hundred tidal current stations.

The software has originally been developed for the interactive use; however, it can be easily used from other programs. Each of the graphic modes features separate display options as well as window settings. The users are now enabled to add custom tides and subordinate stations.

Taking into account the fact that this software is intended for free distribution, there is no need to crack it or pay for any additional codes or installation passphrases. We would highly recommend this compact yet useful program for both practical use and for training purposes. The software is fully self-contained, it means that nothing else is required. It has been tested and proven workable on all Windows platforms.
