High tides, when combined with blustery winds and winter rains, make for amazing storm watching which draws many winter visitors to the Oregon coast.
In simplest terms, higher-than-normal tides or “King” tides typically occur during a new or full moon when the Earth, sun, and moon are nearly in alignment
While beautiful, Oregon’s coastline can be dangerous. It’s a great idea to check tide times and follow common sense recommendations to stay safe. Never turn your back on the ocean, watch for sneaker waves and drift wood and watch for high water or flooding.
