Tides In Hua Hin and Thailand

Post by Geko »

Last year around this time the Costal Tides, South of Hua Hin were pretty low early mornings, now they have been high for months. Anyone know when they will start to fall again.

I have read that they should change daily from low to high every day by 25 minutes roughly in most parts of the world.

Here's a chart you can reference each week:

https://www.tidetime.org/asia/thailand/hua-hin.htm

....and a monthly chart:

* Those charts are said to be accurate for tides from Prachuap Khiri Khan > Hua Hin.

Accurate tide chart for Hua Hin?

Post by LolaBeltran »

Does anyone have a link to an accurate tide table for Hua Hin/ Cha Am? I have been using (https://www.tideschart.com/Thailand/Pra ... an/Hua-Hin) and find it totally inadequate.

For example . . .Yesterday, it predicted very high tide and rising when I wanted to go for my walk. (At high tide a walk is impossible) I nearly skipped going out, but decided to check for myself. And there was the beach at moderate low tide. . .perfect for walking. (BTW This is out near the airport.)

So a link to a more accurate ( and easy to read ) site would be much appreciated.
Thanks

I walk the beach every day when I'm in Hua Hin and this is the most accurate one I've found:

Just click on Hua Hin and you can download a PDF for the year.
The Gulf has complex tide patterns and this is a proper prediction that accounts for that, not just one based on position on the globe like many are.

For anyone who wants to walk or visit the beach, there are exceptionally low tides around midday at the moment and for the next couple of days.
There was the most exposed outcrop of rocks I think I've ever seen in front of the Hilton today and about a hundred locals out collecting shellfish.

Example of a rip tide, or rip current, formed by waves, tide and winds.

Food colouring added to a rip current by the National Ocean Service (NOAA) to show people how they work and most importantly, what direction to go to swim out of them. Phuket has a big problem with these rip currents resulting in several drownings per year.
