20-36 Giving up! Tide too high

20-36 Giving up! Tide too high

Do not attempt this walk during high tide and with surf present. The water will become
2-3 feet deep and you might find yourself trapped by the swells pounding against the wall.

The Ocean looks so calm, and yet watch the stairs behind me! They are wet, even the top level to
the right is wet, which is as high as my shoulders! Do not underestimate the power or large waves!

Here Thomas is a good site that I found and it is even showing the tides for Dec 2006 when I am going to be there. Thanks for putting me on the right trail.
You know me and my Nikon D70 are going to get better pictures.

Tide times are not constant! They depend on the position of the moon, your coordinates,
even on a shape of shoreline in large coastal bays. Thus you will have to consult local
marina or maybe even local newspaper, such as the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, to obtain the
tides for the time of your visit.

You might also use some online resources. For example, this is the tide prediction for Honolulu:

And this comes from NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration):

and actually covers the entire great Pacific.
Enjoy, Thomas.
