The strategic geographical position of Batam Island makes sea transportation become a basic means connecting the islands of the Riau Islands, Riau, Kalimantan, even with neighboring Singapore and Malaysia. The development of coastal areas and the determination of the transportation ways needs tidal and ocean currents data. This study measures and analyzes the tidal type usingmeasuring signs and current patterns using Lagrangian method, then presented in the web form. Five research sites were

The results showed that the type of tidal in Batam Island in general is semidiurnal tide. Tidal period an average of 12 hours and 24 minutes. Wave height of about 0.2 to 2.77 meters from the south to the northwest. Batam Island ocean current patterns ranging from 0.02 m/s to 0.1 m/s from north towards the northeast. Tidal and current survey is one of the conditions in developing inter-island transportation. The tidal and current is useful in design port building, determining the route of transport, port basin design and planning of the breakwater.
