New Buoys

When there's absolutely no wind

In anticipation of the new buoy data dropping on Environment Canada's site at some point I have decided to share a bare-bones site I created to follow some of the live data regarding the strait, such as wave height, tides, and sea temp.

Nice site. I like the English Bay Bouy data. I wonder what the refresh rate would be.

Nav Canada's data is refreshed more often for the airport.

Odd that it disappeared. Still up on Chrome, and Android-based browsers. Might have to update or view from a different browser.

Are these new buoys live? I don't see any mention of them on EC or NOAA buoy sites.

I would also suggest not using Vancouver tides, they are pretty useless considering they are on the other side of the 1st narrows. Tides for Vancouver should be done using Point Atkinson station.

The water temp graph is working for me in Chrome.
