oops, sorry yes 2nd co-ordinate should be West.
Very small tidal range here,maybe 4 feet with 8-10 ft spring tides.
The area by the ramps is within Mission Bay , which was a tidal river swamp until it was dredged out to make one of the largest man made water recreation parks in the country. So probably 6-10 feet with 15-20 mid chanel. But I see what you mean by the wierd color
Its the same on the N.E. end also and yet the water never goes out .Must be a photographic hiccup or in the processing software.
Each of the "bays"you can see within the park is allocated a differant use;so keeps the sailors/PWC /windsurfers/Kitesurfers/ apart.
The larger stretch of water with the two small islands in the middle is where we had the "Thunderboat "races the other week.(Fiesta Bay ) In fact its on TV today on the Outdoor Life Network.Dont think you get that on Sky!
Also to the north you can see De Anza Cove where i got the photos of the Osprey last week.
Its fun checking out SeaWorld to the West and you can even see Shamu in the semi-circular pool attached to the large rectangular pool .
