I don't think that it would be possible to predict tides for all
location accurately enough for your purposes.  Out in the ocean, it
would be possible to predict when high tide will occur; but when you
are sheltered by islands, the tide will lag.  A good example of this
is the tides at Vancouver, B.C.  Tides lags about 6 hours behind the
tides at Tafino, a small town on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
