This winter’s King Tides Project got underway Nov. 24-26, with the first set of high tides on which this citizen science effort will focus. One more day left in this cycle.

Through the King Tides Project, volunteer photographers document the reach of the winter’s highest tides.  The other high tide sequence included in the 2022-2023 of this project, now in its 13th year, takes place Jan. 20-22, 2023.  Go here to learn more.

High tide on Nov. 26 will come at about 1:15 p.m., depending on your specific location on the coast; high tide on the other days will be progressively later.  The idea is to take photos as close to the moment of the highest reach of the tide as possible.
