Default Whats the Tide in your area? 53 Foot??

What's the highest Tide have you seen??

The most I have seen is 3 foot at the Gulf Coast.
Take a look at this place .The Tide is 53 foot


I thought this was pretty cool and figured I share it with ya

Bay of Fundy

Highest Tides in the World
Twice everyday the Bay fills and empties of its 100 billion tonnes of water, creating the highest tides in the world. The height of the tide is 3.5 meters (11ft) along the southwest shore of Nova Scotia and steadily increases as the floodwaters travel up the 280 km (174 miles) of shoreline to the head of the Bay where in the Minas Basin the height of the tide can reach 16 meters (53ft).

Take a look at Salem Harbor in Mass. Tide will come in and out about 1/4 of a mile on the beaches North of Boston.
