Tidal Marine is a new line of marine products manufactured in the Pacific Northwest. The name is new, but the company that manufactures Tidal Marine Products - Northwest Plastics Ltd. - has been a pioneer in producing rotational molded plastic products since 1973. For 43 years we have manufactured some of the most advanced marine buoy products of all sizes. We forged new ground when we were the first to produce rotomolded navigation buoys. Now we have buoys and floats that have been in the water for over 20 years in just about every part of the world. Need something custom? We can do that too!
