Several vendors sell digitized NOAA charts (i.e., Maptech). Usually
they also have GIS-like software for charting and navigating with a
GPS unit. I am sure that you could adapt one of these to plot tide
gage locations on a digital chart.
As for the locations of tide stations, each NOAA tide gage is
associated with a tidal benchmark. Both the gages and the tidal
benchmark sheets are online at the NOS web site.
If you want a real GIS but don't have the funds for ESRI. Try GRASS
