No, High tides occur when there is a full or new moon. Low tides occure when there is a half or as quarter moon. This all makes a difference because the the cause of tides is the gravitational pull of the moon and sun if you need another reference go to google and type in video of an ocean tides there are some pretty interesting facts about tides
