I found the printed tide books that have the big arrows for big tides, smaller to medium arrows for other tides to be VASTLY superior to any sort of numbers -- the tides are so complex that you need all the help you can get.
If you aren't boating, not such a big deal. But if you are on the water in the San Juans, you may find it helpful to be able to "see" how tides swirl around some of the islands, going south when the rest of the tide is going north.
Here are a few online resources -
