Chesapeake Bay Meteorological Data for Fossil Collectors - Winds, Tides, Weather, Sea Nettles, etc...

When looking up tide information with the above tide link, the tide stations that run along the cliffs (from north to south) are at Chesapeake Beach, Plum Point, Long Beach, and Cove Point.
The tides come sooner the further south one travels.
So, for quick reference, if you want the Plum Point tides, just subtract 38 minutes from the Chesapeake Beach tides.
If you are closer to Long Beach, subtract 1 hour and 18 minutes from the Chesapeake Beach tides.
