PHOTOS: Lowest Tide Of The Summer At Local Beaches

Print This Post  Email This Post

The lowest tide of the summer occurred at our local beaches today, almost three and a half feet lower than average.

When these low tides happen, you’ll find volunteer naturalists at Seahurst Beach and Des Moines Beach. They’re part of a program run by the Seattle Aquarium.

From late May until early August, naturalists are available during scheduled days and hours to help visitors explore the beaches and learn more about the creatures that make this habitat their home.

We’ll experience another lower than average tide tomorrow just after noon. Beach naturalists will again be available from 10 AM until 2 PM. This is a great, free, family outing right here in our own community!

You can find out the dates that beach naturalists will be available at area beaches and get information on tides at the Seattle Aquarium website.

Photographer Michael Brunk was at Des Moines Beach today for low tide and captured these photos. Click on the image to advance through the slideshow.
