[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Ship Shoal Light are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in feet referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
