The Tides of June
Extreme High and Low Tides for June occur near the month's end. Highest tides of around +7.0 feet happen at 9:22 p.m. on Monday, June 22, and at 10:10 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23. Extreme low-tide events occur at 3:50 a.m. on Monday, June 22 (-1.6 feet); at 4:35 a.m. on Tuesday, June 23 (-1.8 feet); at 5:21 a.m. on Wednesday, June 24 (-1.7 feet); and at 6:06 a.m. on Thursday, June 25 (-1.5 feet). These are rock-bottom tide levels for the year, but as is typical for the months between April and September, they occur during the wee hours of the morning. Early-rising tidepooling enthusiasts might take advantage of the last two low tides listed above, when there is some light in the sky.
