Tide range Sat 30th April/1st May is approximately 2.0m. This is a mid range tide. Earlier this week the range was 4.0m. Both the Grey Dogs and the Corryvreckan 'work' every day. The 'whirlpools and currents on the flood and ebb tides are totally different. We will be happy to work out tides for the weekend.
We are happy to share our experiences of how to approach the whirlpools and go through the Grey Dogs. Both can be impressive to the RIBster but it is also worth remembering that people do swim the Corryvreckan
