To find the best day and time in your area to take a King Tides photo check out our Tide Tables (button below). The peak of the high tide is the best time to take photos because that is when water levels are highest. Depending on your photo location the time for high tide can vary. Can’t find your location on our tide tables below? Learn how to use tide gauge data from NOAA CO-OPS to know when to go out and take King Tide pictures by watching this video tutorial.
