red tide?


We've been going to Madeira beach for 6 or 7 years now, usually last week of July - 1st week of August. Last year the red tide was pretty bad, lots of dead fish floating in the water and on the beach. Stench was bad, couldn't swim for several days.

Is the red tide still around? Any guesses if it will be bac again this summer? We love it there so much but the red tide did make it pretty gross.

No red tide is here now. We can go years and years with out getting any. This past year was the worst ever. I have been in the area since the late 60's.

This past summer it came and went. The lack of any tropical weather was a factor in the "tide" hanging around. With no wind to blow it away. Anyway, it is unusual to have it in the Summer, most often a fall issue.

Hope this helps. Tim from sunhost.us
