Tidal Movement Models

Hi, is there a way to plot tidal movement in ArcMap? I am trying to plot how far larvae spawned into the water column from shipwreck site will get in a certain time.

 

I have two main sources of data for this the tidal atlas for the region and the tidal diamond on the admiralty chart and i am plotting them in manually by using Direction/Length in 1 hour sections.

 

I was thinking of making a fishnet grid over the area and in the attributes adding a column for the time relative to HW Dover, with a polar bearing, and a speed column. but Im unsure of how to go past this point.

 

any help or ideas is apprecated
