the charts are pretty simple to read.
The following indicators are important:
Lat, Longitude, place name, time (military time preferred, sunrise, sunset,
moonrise, moonset) and tide height in feet's and slack time.
Now usually we read the charts by the Lat and Longi for a particular place
by time. At each time the FT shows the tides in feet and the slacks between tides.
In the link you provided I think the MT is the dept but not sure as many people
use different abbreviations.
you can double check that with the chart plotters.
you can get the tide chart at the local marina or check the local

OK, so let us take the first date
Date High Tide Low tide
Time Mt FT Time Mt FT
1/10/08 5:46 10:59 34.79 0:29 1:08 3:54
17:51 09:59 31.47 12:43 1:80 5:91
So this means that on 1-10-2008 the high tide will occur at 5:46 AM, and will come upto 10.59 mts. It will start going down and will reach minimum point at 0:29 hrs upto 1.08 mts.
The second high tide will occur at 17:51 hrs and 9:59 mts, it will start going down and will be a lowest depth at 12:43 AM at 1.08 mts.
