Does anyone know when in the tide phase you can ride the tide at Pipers Lagoon?
Yes, you can ride the in-coming tide at Piper's 's channel. It is an exhilarating experience akin to swimming down a horizontal waterfall. Be aware that you should be a strong swimmer or wear a life jacket. Be sure to go with others in case you have any problems. There are no lifeguards in attendance. To get to the channel, drive down Lagoon Drive off of Hammond Bay road until you reach the water. There are several parking spots, there. Do not go down Place Road to the park. Be sure to look at a tide chart to determine when there is a n coming tide. Have fun! But, be safe!
Sorry tides are still a mystery to me.
Nope, can't help you either.
I have no idea. I have not heard of that. Sorry
I assume you mean "ride the tide" at the narrow entry at the mouth of the lagoon.
I've never heard of anyone "riding" the rapids that surge through the narrows there and I wouldn't recommend it. On the incoming tide you could be pushed in the middle of the lagoon and the deep mud could cause some problems getting out if you run into difficulty.
On the outgoing tide you would be swept out into deep water and a very rocky shore with crashing waves.
Most importantly, there are no life guards at either the lagoon or the ocean side of the neck.
Definitely NOT recommended.
