Our Hilton Head Tide Clock brings to life the beautiful coastline of the region. Birchwood is hand-stained and creates a natural foundation for the wood chart. An artist expertly engraves precise water depth lines on the clock’s surface, while a raised layer of birch highlights the small and large islands that makeup Hilton Head. Points of interest, roads, and depth indicators are etched into the nautical wood map clock, creating a piece of art that is both beautiful and functional.
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.
We are map geeks! So naturally we have the most detailed map of Tide Clocks on the market.
