Tide Chart

Shorebird fans should find this posting of monthly tide charts helpful. Shorebirds will be particularly visible in the tidal salt marsh when the tide recedes, as the muddy edges which are so attractive to them are exposed. Conversely, shorebirding in the Vogt Pool, also known as the west pool, can be better at high tide. Please note that water depths will vary depending on various weather conditions.

Visit the Tide Chart, run by the University of South Carolina.

Please add one hour to all tide times for the waters surrounding the Wildlife Drive.
