1380-Tides – Halibut Cove, AK

The tides in Halibut Cove Alaska can be fierce. The few days I was on the cove, the tides were 28 feet: +24 high and -4 low. Boaters had to time their trips according to the tide charts. As you can see in the photos, there are boats lying in the mud during the low period.
