King Tide Event – Port Townsend

November 18, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm

Witness Washington’s Highest Tide of Year

Join coastal experts at the King Tide Viewing Party. November 18 at the Northwest Maritime Center.

Each winter, king tides—the highest tides of the year—offer a spectacular shoreside show and a sneak preview of what rising sea levels will mean in years to come.

Join Washington Sea Grant and the Washington Department of Ecology for Port Townsend’s first King Tide Viewing Party. Free snacks and hot beverages will take the edge off the chill, and coastal scientists will explain the science of these jumbo tides. Bring your camera and post your king tide photos on the King Tide Project’s online gallery!
