Negative Tides

Checking the tidepool tables this morning reveals that a series of negative tides is coming up again in the afternoon hours in November and December. Early December will have some really low tides. Unfortunately, they are mostly mid-week and the one on Saturday occurs more than an hour after sunset. You can expect the tide to be out for an hour before to an hour after the times listed here.

November 1st through the 5th, 14th through the 19th, and December 13th through the 19th are also periods of afternoon negative low tides. And it looks like we will be able to ring in the New Year with the lowest tides of all. It was last New Year's that my son and family and I made our first trip to Abalone Cove. Maybe we can make a return trip this year (hint, hint).


  1. Is there a good time on a Friday morning where Cole, Megan, and I can come over to go to the tide pools?

  2. No need to hint I'm all for it!!!!! We should talk about it when we see you, next!!!!
