Junes Tidal Waves

There will be a series of tidal waves on the river next weekend and through the following week.

To celebrate, we will be holding a charity garden party on the 23rd, which also happens to be a super moon date.  A super Moon is a full moon when the moon is closest to the Earth.  So it appears about 1/4 larger than normal as we pass each other.  The gravitational pull on the planet is greater on a full moon, coupled with the high spring tides, we should see some fantastic late evening Tidal Waves.

Here's the full list of times and dates.


The stars indicate the strength and force of the Eagre Tide. Graded 1- 5 with 5 being the strongest

23rd 5:15pm *

24th 6:10pm **

25th 6:20am *** 7:00pm ***

26th 7:05am *** 7:45pm **

27th 7:50am ** 8:35pm *

The times above are for ‘best chance’ of seeing a Tidal Wave on the River Great Ouse from the bridge, next to The Cock Inn at

Wiggenhall St Mary Magdalen, Norfolk

Best to be 20 mins early than 1 min late

Tidal waves are a natural phenomenon and the times above are subject to many factors that could have an effect of the actual arrival of the wave. These are NOT organised events and wave watchers should take care when near fast moving water. Be sensible and respectful to the residents of the Village.

Thank you.


  1. Thanks for posting these predictions up. Swam it last night with a mate. Really awesome - we shall return!

  2. September will be better. From the moon on the 21st right through for a week. The morning tides will be colossal and worth both the sight and experience. I'll post times closer to the event itself.
