According to spokesperson Craig Lambinon, the spring tide effect, which leads to higher than normal high tide and lower than normal low tides, has started taking effect and will lead towards the full moon peak at 3pm on Saturday.
Lambinon warned fishers, bathers, beach walkers and coastal hikers to be cautious, especially during the afternoons at high tide when the tide peaks. “Some beaches will have very little place for beachgoers as the high tide rises. Rock anglers should be aware that places that they have fished from previously during the past week may be submerged at high tide.
“Those hiking on the coastline should realise that their proposed route may not be accessible because of the higher than usual tide.
“Sea Rescue is appealing to parents to make sure their children have responsible adult supervision when they’re around any water.”
