This Alaskan tidal bore took place on the Turnagain Arm in the Cook Inlet near Girdwood (Anchorage), Alaska. A tidal bore, or bore tide, is when the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) travel up a river or narrow bay in the opposite direction of the river or bay’s current. These tidal bores typically happen in areas with large tidal range. When there are large fluctuations in the low and high tides. Typically, 20 feet or so between the low and high tide marks.
The Cook Inlet is one place where a 5-mile ride is very normal. Watch the video to see why!
