The highest tides, called spring tides, are formed when the earth, sun and moon are lined up in a row. This happens every two weeks during a new moon or full moon. Smaller tides, called neap tides, are formed when the earth, sun and moon form a right angle. ie half way between Full and New moon. Use your lunar calandar to see when Full and New moon occurs in each month.
