Boston Harbor Tide Clock, 16.50" Diameter
Boston Harbor is a bustling and beautiful waterfront filled with opportunities for adventure. The city has something for everyone, whether you prefer to cruise the harbor on one of the city’s famous duck boat tours or take in the historic scenery of Harvard Yard.
Boston Harbor serves as a natural harbor and estuary of Massachusetts Bay. Located adjacent to the city of Boston, the area was the site of the Boston Tea Party in 1773 and is known as a critical location in the American Revolution. The harbor features dozens of islands, including thirty-four that are part of the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area.
Our nautical tide clock showcases the incredible shorelines of Boston Harbor as well as the surrounding islands. The clock is sixteen and a half inches in diameter and features a single-layer depth map with a hand-stained greyish-blue base that highlights the color of the natural wood. The wood art topography is depicted with engraved water-depth contours and finished with additional etchings of significant landmarks, attractions, and points of interest on the clock face.
What is a tide clock and how does it work? Fun facts: The lunar day is 24 hours and 50 minutes long & the moon is the biggest influence of the tides! Since there are two high tides each lunar day our tide clocks rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes. Quartz tide clocks are perfect for the more predictable tides of the Eastern United States. You can always set your tide clock by either a quick internet search for high tide in your area for the next high tide, or set it monthly at the full or new moon.
We are map geeks! So naturally we have the most detailed map Tide Clocks on the market.
