Walk on Water

spanish banks low tide
This week, walk on water at Spanish Banks beach!

Some of the lowest tides of the year are gracing Vancouver’s shores, which means you can walk or skimboard for miles on the ocean floor! What’s also unique about Vancouver’s current tidal flow is the difference between high and low tide. In some seasons it only fluctuates by a few feet in any given day, but right now the daily fluctuation is up to 14 feet.

So, stop what you’re doing and get over to Spanish Banks at 12:42pm today! The tide will be among the lowest this month, which means you can fully take advanteage of summer’s heat, and cool off as your feet melt into the sandbar!

To get you in the mood, here’s a great video showing Spanish Banks expansive beach and skimboarders gliding along its shores!

Don’t forget your clam diggers.  See you there!
