Tides

In general, our area has two high tides, and two low tides per day. Their timing shifts a bit later each day. In the summer, our lowest tides are during the day, in winter they are at night. Click the map for a view of all tide stations in/around Island County – then click on any station to access NOAA or ProTides displays for that station.
