Cape Cod Tide Clock, 16.50" Diameter
There’s something magical about Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The beautiful beaches, resort hotels, and romantic hideaways make this coastal community a one-of-a-kind escape for people across the country. From Martha’s Vineyard to Nantucket, there’s something incredible about this little slice of heaven.
The Wampanoag Native Americans have called Cape Cod home for centuries. Once home to whaling and trading ventures, the Cape and its surrounding islands have become favorite travel destinations for people worldwide. With more than 400 miles of shoreline, you’ll always find a picturesque view of this coastal New England community.
Our nautical tide clock showcases the landscape of Cape Cod and its surrounding islands. The Cape Cod Clock is sixteen and a half inches in diameter, including an outline of the island in birch with a recessed layer below the land. The depths of the surrounding water are laser etched into the clock’s face and showcase the topographical lines of the ocean floor. Our artist hand-stained the face of the clock a beautiful greyish-blue color, and landmarks and points of interest are engraved into the wood map to create a picturesque keepsake of the beauty of the Cape.
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 on 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.
