Only Tides Will Tell

Municipality of Chester

"Just because the tide is out,

doesn't mean there is less water in the ocean."

Seth Godin

In a province that’s almost completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean – it’s fair to say we appreciate the tremendous ebb and flow of the tides. In fact, no matter where you stand in Nova Scotia you’re never more than 60km/37miles from the sea.

So whether looking for the perfect picture, bound for the beach or setting sail for open waters – you’d be wise to know the highs and lows of it.

To find out the current tide levels in the Municipality of Chester you'll need to check the chart for Lunenburg County here.

Ever wonder what causes the ocean to rise and fall? We found a fantastic video that explains it all - WATCH!
