Waves and Tides

Waves and Tides

Fun Facts

Did you know that ocean tides are created by a combination of the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun combined with the rotation of the earth!

Most places have two high tides and low tides per day

There are times during the earth's rotation that the moon and the sun are on the same side and this causes larger tides, these are known as Spring Tides.

The important stuff..

Whenever you head to the beach always check the tides, you may get to the beach and it will be a high tide and the beach will not be accessible. 

Always be cautious about when the tide is going out or coming in, be careful not to get cut off by the tide.

Waves are not safe environments to play in, the sea is very unpredictable and what looks like fun could end in tragedy with bigger waves taking you out to sea.
