When visiting the Oregon Coast, knowing when low tide is very important, as the beach can be dangerous at times. A tide table of course can help you determine when the best time to relax on the beach with your family is. The Oregon Coast is absolutely mesmerizing, but can also be treacherous if you aren’t paying attention to your surroundings or aren't aware of the possibility of sneakers waves.
Twenty one people have been killed by sneaker waves on the Oregon coast since 1990, and even more have been severely injured. It goes without saying, knowing what time is low tide on the Oregon Coast is essential.
Now, you may be wondering, "What makes the tide go in and out like a yo-yo?" Well, it's all thanks to the moon's gravitational pull! When the moon pulls the ocean water towards it, a bulge of water is created, resulting in a high tide. And because we're dealing with some predictable forces of nature here, we can actually anticipate the height of the sea level with pretty good accuracy.

How to Interpret a Tide Chart
To make the most out of your beach exploration, it's important to know how to read a tide chart. There are two key things to pay attention to: the height and the time.
When you look at the "Height" section of the chart, a larger number indicates that it will be a high tide, while a smaller number means it will be a low tide. Keep in mind that there are typically two high tides and two low tides every day.
The "Time" section of the chart gives you an approximate idea of when the high or low tide will occur. By using this information, you can plan your visit to the beach accordingly.
For example, the Oregon Coast Tide Chart displays the height in both feet and centimeters, making it easy to understand and use.
