Why would someone want to know where to find a "tide calender"
(it was posted that the tides do not change in Aruba)
was curious to why we would want to know the tide schedule.
the tides barely move due to close proximity of aua and equator.
maybe google search can help?
Some people are curious.
When I owned a boat at the Jersey shore we always made sure we were aware of the tides when out on the water.
When going to the beach whether in Jersey or Florida, I like to know the times of the tide, in that most would agree low tide is more preferable.
I saw the question and though I knew the tide fluctuations very little due to the location, I looked up the link Andrea posted. Sure enough, tide fluctuations are very minimal.
Perhaps the poster did not realize that there is little fluctuation and was looking for an ideal time to swim?
I check the tide on the mornings I go fishing when I'm there. It does barely move but it's nice to know the exact times.
I like to fish for Bonefish on the flats up by the kite surfing area (soon to be Ritz area I guess?) and like it to be as shallow as possible so I can walk out a little farther and can see the fish a little better in the water. I have no clue with boating down there...it's not something I do while I'm there.
With boating, regardless of where, you always want to be aware of tides because the tide determines the depth of the water, whereas standing on shore you just see it come in and go out.
A rising tide will bring deeper water and a lower tide will bring lower water. I would imagine it would be extremely important in Aruba even if you are talking a foot or less near coral mounds such as those found say near Mangel Halto. A foot in a boat can sometimes be the difference between high and dry or floating.
