2024 King Tide Photo Surveys coming up!
July 4th and 5th, 2024


Check out our photo submission platform!
pacioos.org/kt


Help us document the impacts of King Tides (the highest high tides of the year). Documenting King Tides can give us a snapshot of what our future shorelines may look like with rising sea levels. Visit the project website, www.PacificIslandsKingTides.org, for peak high tide times at locations across the Hawaiian Islands on King Tide photo survey dates.

Photo survey dates for 2024 are...

July 4th & July 5th

July 20th & July 21st

 August 17th & August 18th

You can explore our database of photographs to see all of the new photos submitted.

Photos from different years and a wide variety of locations help us to better understand King Tide events and identify vulnerable coastal areas so that we can provide support for preparedness and planning. Your photographs are a valuable resource for helping coastal communities and decision-makers better understand and prepare for sea-level rise.
