TIDES



The Bay of Somme records the most important tidal coefficients of the Channel. There are two full seas and two low seas a day.
At low tide, the sea can retreat up to 12km towards the open sea. At high tide, it goes the other way with a speed that can reach 2.55m / s.
In a few minutes the current brings everything in its path, encircling the sandbanks and covering them with several meters of water.
If this phenomenon is an unforgettable spectacle, it is no less dangerous.
For your safety, do not venture alone in the Bay, Learn about tide times and keep your watch at your fingertips ...

Outings supervised by professional guides are proposed to discover this exceptional environment in complete safety.
