Prepare for tidal excitement on Seattle's waterfront. The difference between low and high tides will be massive on July 14 (Bastille Day). The tide will be minus 4 feet at noon and rise all day to peak at plus 12 feet around 7:30 PM. This is the week to spot anemones, crabs, and sculpins at local beaches or at the Seattle Aquarium on Pier 59 below Pike Place Market. Catch the tides too from any of the waterfront restaurants on Piers 54, 55, 56, 57, 66, 67, or 70.
