tide and time

I have two sources I use for tide times, and I found out today they are giving different information:

http://www.isleofwightweather.co.uk/...owes200704.htm
http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/coast/t...70421&loc=0060

I was looking at 21 April 2007

There is between 1 and 2 hours diffeerence in the times of the tides for Cowes!

Does anyone have a reliable tide timetable?

One is GMT (BBC) the other is probably BST?

If this was the case then this would account for the hour difference

I thought of that, but it varied! As much as 1 hour 40 something minutes, down to around 5 something minutes....

Sounds like they are getting confused with the old 1st and 2nd tide times unique to the Solent!

Though second high is usually 2 hours after the first high water!!!
