Because the Earth rotates through two tidal "bulges" each lunar day, coastal areas experience two high tides and two low tides every 24 hours and 50 minutes. High tides occur every 12 hours and 25 minutes. It takes 6 hours and 12.5 minutes for water to move along the bank from high to low or from low to high.
