Get ready for Supermoon and high tides

Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA (CBS 8) - This weekend San Diego will get to see the phenomenon known as the Supermoon and it could affect the tides.

The seven-foot tides are expected to last until Sunday and hit after 9 p.m.

The high tide may cause dangerous rip currents which is putting lifeguards.

“People have to watch out where they are walking make sure they are focused on which way to walk and which way to swim,” said San Diego Lifeguard Marine Safety Lt. John Sandmeyer.

Surfers say they can feel the tide.

“The water is unseasonably warm. The tide is definitely coming up and there is motion in the water, some water getting pushed around,” said Franco Faraudo.

While surfers, swimmers and lifeguards are on alert others are enjoying the views of the high tide at La Jolla’s Marine Room.

“This is high demand, it's like Disneyland,” said Chef Bernard Guillas.

While lifeguards, surfers and swimmers are on alert during high tide diners are taking advantage of the view at La Jolla’s The Marine Room.

“I knew the difficult thing was the people who come early how are we going to get them out?” said Jim Dunford.

Reservations are a must for The Marine Room during high tide.

“The windows are getting kissed by the waves. Usually the chef is kissing the ladies but today it's just an amazing shot,” said Chef Bernard.

High tide is scheduled to hit on Saturday around 9:30 p.m.
