Negative Tides

It's negative tide season again! Negative tides that happen in the daylight hours, that is. November and December offer some nice afternoon negative tides. Check the tide tables and plan your trip to the cove. Bring kids and cameras. LEAVE THE WILDLIFE!


  1. So when do you want to go?

    How about the weekend of Nov 6-7?

    For a discussion about the forces that produce tides along the west coast. It helps explain why the lowest tide slips forward and behind the 24 hour cycle. Thanks to your sharp eye, I looked it up and learned something new!

  3. And then there is DST "Fall Back" at 2AM Sunday 11/7.
