Tides for charlotte Harbor -
This is very confusing for people who
lived by an ocean. On an ocean you have four, tide changes a day. Simple every 6
hours or so it changes. NOT here, in 24 hours there could be 1-2-3-4-5- changes
in a day none and six changes are possible although I have not seen that yet. This has
something to do with water currants in the gulf, or maybe, when the tide comes
in from the Atlantic,
it simply sloshes back and forth?
Ok lets get to the tides. We exchange about 2 feet of water during a 24 hour
period, in Charlotte Harbor. The term "HIGH" is used to describe the most water
during that time, Not implying that the water will be high, or deep.
applies to "LOW" this is the lowest the water will be for that time. Highs and
lows are only for reference. Or if you are stuck on a sand bar.
High is the most water for that time then it is "outgoing"
until it reaches it lowest point then when "low" it is "incoming" until
To know how much water you will have look after the time. 0.0 is
lower low water. All charts depths are at 0.0
Your house and land based objects are measured from High tide, in our case 2.0 is
the normal high for our area.
0.0 is the same every where. The high changes every place you go,
As said our High tide is 2.0 the water can be higher or lower than this height.
1.0 is the average.
Keep in mind that high tides may be lower than some lows or vise versa.
Best bet look at a chart, The only way a tide clock works in Charlotte is if
you hang it over the water, and when it is wet, it's high tide.
is the tides different heights during part of the year
