Rules of Attraction

Tide experience

What are the tides?

Twice a day, the sea level increases and decreases. It is due to the rules of attraction between the earth and moon. Spring tides (between 90 and 120) happen when the earth, moon and sun are aligned.

Experience low tides

Shellfish picking is a free, but not improvised, luxury. Pick up a tide schedule, watch for the biggest tides (spring tides are ideal) and check the weather forecast before you go.

A big tide has a coefficient ranging between 90 and 120. The best time to start is when the tide is receding. Put on your boots, warm clothes and raincoat. Do not forget your tools: basket, rake, landing net, spoon…
You might find some scallops!
