let's say it's gonna be high tide at Reversing Falls in Saint John at 8:15 am. How do I know when it will be high tide at Darling's Island, for example?

The tide won't be far off the Falls tide.For best results I use The DFO site.
Further than you would think. From the Falls to Long Island is about 3 hrs. Darlings Island is further upriver still...

Just found a couple of times for high tide upriver :

Hatfield Point = Saint John + 3 hours, 20 minutes

Evandale = Saint John + 3 hours, 19 minutes

there used to be as rule of thumb, something like an hour for every 10 miles up stream, but it`s been a while. i think darlings island is 4.75 hrs after the falls (i had it wrong last year and was corrected at the hammond river classic)

Since i posted this, the gov't now has a reading for Rothesay, so it's all good.

And when you go on that site, click on "Reversing Falls", for example, and then when it takes you there, look to the left and there's a little search window in which you can click on the drop and find the more precise spot you want. That's where you can find "Rothesay", for example.

lol, it`s looking like i still had it wrong, lol!
i bet the people that run the canoe tours through there would know. the guy that told me said it was .... after evandale (the fill in the blank spot is what i can`t remember), he lived on darlings island.
all the sturgeon guys should know - hey Nick, whats the tide difference?
