About the service
On average, Saltstraumen turns about 1 hour 40 minutes after high tide in Bodø. The actual time differs by up to +/- 30 minutes from this, in extreme cases also more.
Weather effects on water levels, wind and water flow in the rivers and local winds affect the flow in Saltstraumen. These effects are taken into account in the foracasting model.
Generally, the time for current turning is shifted forward in time during spring tide and backwards during neap tide.
