Since 2010, people have joined the California King Tides Project in taking and sharing photos of the highest high tides of the year and their impact on the shore. Starting with the 2018/2019 season, photos are compiled in an interactive online map, presenting a geographic view of this community science data. You can also browse nearly 3,000 photos collected on Flickr from past years, search for #kingtides on social media platforms, and view a small selection of photos from various years organized by county below.


Click on photo below for larger image. Thousands more photos are available on the photo maps, where you may also find larger versions of the photos below. Photos are available for use by the public. We appreciate your acknowledgment of the California King Tides Project in your use of these photos.
