King Tides and Coastal Hazards

Very high waves and swell for West Vancouver Island on Saturday.

The region will be experiencing extreme high tides during mid-day throughout the January 21st to 23rd period. Maximum high tide will be 3.7 meters (12.1') taking place mid-day on Saturday.

Stay well back from the water's edge and be alert for exceptionally high waves. Higher than normal water run-up is expected on beaches and low-lying shoreline.

Keep away from large logs on the beach. Water running up on the beach can easily lift or roll logs which can injure someone caught in their path.
