There are two major types of tide gauges: those that measure water levels in real time (known as harmonic stations), and those that extrapolate water levels based on a harmonic/reference station (known as a subordinate station). The nearest active harmonic station to Pleasantville is in Atlantic City. Ocean-side subordinate stations are found in Longport and Ventnor, while bay-side subordinate stations are found in Pleasantville at Lakes Bay, Egg Harbor Township, and along the Patcong Creek. Due to Pleasantville’s location on the bay, the bayside stations are most useful for those interested in tide forecasts for the City. Links for these tide stations are below:

Caption: This image shows current water levels, predicted tides, air pressure, and air/water temperature for the harmonic tide gauge nearest to Pleasantville in Atlantic City. Note that these conditions will likely be slightly different in Pleasantville due to the distance from Atlantic City and the gauge’s location on the ocean and not the bay. The difference from Atlantic City is a time offset of one hour for high tide and 97 minutes for low tides, while the height difference is 0.98 feet for high tide and 0.82 feet for low tide.
