    Is the tide at BHB the same as the tide at the Port of PB buoy, or is there a delay at BHB?

    Great site for BHB current month tide info and tips.
    Is it possible to find the BHB tide info for subsequent months on this site?

    • Hi Lou, Glad you like our website! At this time we can only show the tides for one month. But that’s a great tide. During the month of April, we’ll see what we can do in regards to posting many months. if we can do it, we will roll it out with the May tides.

    Would this apply to snorkeling as well?

    Are the current strong at low tide?

    Thank you this a great site.

    Thanks for all of the info!
    I’m just a little confused on how long scuba divers can stay under water and when to leave. I’m planning on going Monday 2/15/2016 for the 7:40am low tide and 1:43pm high tide. How long can I stay underwater and when would I have to be out?
    Another question, can snorkelers join divers?

    • Hi Deborah, I’ve done a 2hr dive at the bridge before, but you have to pay very close attention to the current. It will turn into a river quickly. On the 2hr dive, about 40 minutes of it included poor viz.

      Personally, I would skip low tide. We have friends who snorkel under the bridge, but most snorkelers stay on the snorkel trail.

    […] dive. The water is very shallow and usually very clear. Plan to enter the water an hour before high tide, and exiting an hour after. Parking sucks so get there early. Just don’t park illegally. […]
