Understanding Tide Table
When planning a trip for the Brazilian Northeast, it is important to keep an eye on Tide Table. The board can be seen in the Navy or surfing sites.
The natural pools of Porto de Galinhas and other destinations are formed when the tide is low, a fact that happens twice a day. You must know that the phases of the moon directly influence the tides; therefore, not all moons are good to find low tide. Note that, in the weeks of full moon and new moon, the oscillation between the highest and the lowest tide is higher (close to 0.0 / 0.1 and 2.5), so the tides are shallower and more flooded in that period; so are the best weeks for a trip.
