Future Tides is a new media service covering maritime innovation and the future of the maritime community in Washington State and Pacific Northwest.
Intended for recreational boaters, professional mariners and all who share the region’s waterways, the Future Tides newsletter launched in October 2021.
Issues include original articles, digestible data and research prompted by reader’s questions. See past issues for examples and original articles are featured below. New website at futuretides.org coming soon.
