A really good source for tide info is Zihuatanejo tide-forecast . Com. I m wondering why from June 7-10 there is hardly any difference between high and low tides. Does anyone know these things? I thought it was related to the moon, but... No smart aleck replies needed please.

You are mostly correct. However, the gravity of the sun plays a part.

You are very welcome. (Next time, can we use smart-alecky replies? Please?)
