King Tide Calendar


King tides occur when the Earth, Moon and Sun are aligned at perigee (Moon closet to earth) and perihelion (Sun closet to earth), resulting in the largest tidal range seen over the course of a lunar month or year. Local severe weather events with low air pressure and strong winds can also enhance the high tide height causing coastal inundation, erosion and transport disruption around the gulf, harbours and inlets.
