Tide Tables: British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and California

 

Year: 2017     Units: feet     Daylight Savings Time when applicable

 

These tide tables are provided in a format that can be helpful in planning kayaking and beach hiking trips. In our part of the world, it is often easier to do extended kayak camping trips during times of relatively mild tidal range. Beach hiking often requires knowledge of tides for getting around headlands and the like.

The tide height (in feet) is provided every hour of the day. The table is color coded by the height of the tide so it is easy to scan the entire year for days of interest.

Finding a suitable week for a camping kayak trip is simple. Look for a week where, during the day, the tide does not go very low. (No blue colors and as much yellow and above as possible.) Good strategy for camping along the Washington coast.

In other contexts, you might be looking for extremely high tides or low tides to explore areas during those extremes. Just look for days and hours with dark red colors for the high tide or deep blues for the low tides. You can grok this for the entire year without much more than a glance.
