This will my first trip out to the ONP and I'd really love to see some of the spectacular places along the coast.
I'm wondering, both tide- and weather-wise, if a trip in the first week of September would be a good idea.
I'm looking at the tide tables (and sunrise/sunset) and things aren't looking all that ideal.
There's a .4' low tide on Sat, Sept 7th (at 8:16 am) and a 3' low tide on Sep 1st (at 4:42 PM).
Should I try for the early morning on the 7th? And with sunrise at 6:44AM is this a good idea?
Most places have recommended arriving half an hour before low tide, which would be at 7:46 AM.
How difficult would it be to get to Second beach right after dawn and what would the weather conditions be like?
Also, are there any creeks to cross?
Thanks in advance for all of the help!
