High & Low Tides on BC's Sunshine Coast

One of my favourite parts of living next to the ocean is paying attention to the tidal fluctuations, especially when there are extremes between low and high tides.

It’s a gross oversimplification to say that tides are caused by the gravitational forces of the sun and moon but that’s all the science my feeble Realtor mind can process. FundyForce.ca explains that our tides repeat themselves every 12 hours and 25 minutes, as that’s the amount of time it takes for the Earth to rotate once relative to the Moon.

Earlier in June, we saw a big difference between low and high tides and we’ll see that again in the first part of July. During extreme low tides, you’re able to head to the beach and explore more exposed seabed than what you’d typically have access to.

Times and tides will vary slightly along other parts of the Sunshine Coast. Visit these links to find local tide tables.
