Important Notice

In neap tide conditions (tidal coefficients lower than 50), there is a retention phenomenon which results in a high water slack stand of 1 to 3 hours in duration, with a variation in the water level of less than 20 cm. This phenomenon renders the determination of the high tide time imprecise.

Therefore, there may be notable differences in relation to the predictions provided by the Naval Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service (NHOS) for Saint Nazaire, all the more so as for safety reasons, it has been decided to indicate in these tide tables the time at which slack water begins. Such differences are often less than 15 minutes.
