Difference between ocean current and tides?

Answer:
Tides are periodic rises and falls of large bodies of water. Ocean current are continous and directed movements of ocean waters.
The main difference between the two is that while tides are caused due to the gravitational pull between the Earth, moon and the Sun, ocean currents are caused due to various factors like winds, density differences in water masses, salinity and temperature.
