Current Atlas

I have a great Current Atlas for the San Juan's ("Current Atlas: Juan de Fuca Strait to Strait of Georgia) published by Canadian gov't.

Is there one for the Puget Sound?
Thanks!

Yes one is published. Check with Captain’s in Seattle. I won’t be on the boat for a while so I can’t send a pic, but it’s out there.

Not the same but Navionics shows currents. You can run the Navionics app on your phone or tablet and access the tides and currents along with chart data.

Canadian Hydrographics have reportedly discontinued printing the Current Atlas, but Waggoner Guide still publishes the yearly tables.

There isn’t a separate one for WA state because it’s a Canadian publication, but the San Juan Islands are included.

Not a current atlas but I do find this very useful for Puget Sound.

Definitely not the same.
Navionics shows various passes but no detail anywhere else.

The Current Atlas shows currents everywhere in its area.
I haven't looked at mine in a while, but IIRC, the currents are shown for small tidal changes and separately for larger changes, so you can find the size change you are in, then look at the location you are in, wherever in that area. You don't need one that references cates at all, so one issued (like my own) 30 years ago is still useful.
Real handy if you are looking to do a passage where there are known back eddies, like along the shore of Stanley Park while heading towards First Narrows, or along Spanish Banks, while racing small sailboats in the area.

Yes
I don't know of anything doing the same for other areas.

I don't have the chart shown in the first post.

I do have the two that show the Yuculta and Dent rapids and the booklet that shows Burrard Inlet First and Second Narrows.

I have used them for good purpose on my own. I loaned them to a friend who was a Predicted Log racer. He wanted them but of course I still have as I periodically use them.

I should have bought the chart above but at the time I spent very little time in the Gulf Islands.

THey were excellent and helpfull publications that are no longer available.

I used to use the Current Atlas book until I found this app IPhone OR Android for the phone. Yes there is an annual fee, well worth it IMO.

I rely on Deep Zoom for tides and currents in the Puget Sound. Requires an internet connection but very easy to use. https://www.deepzoom.com/

I agree. It was one of the only reasons to go to Seattle. Fisheries Supply and Sure Marine are the other two.
