I need a term for the underwater sailing experience my wife and I "enjoyed" three years ago here just off Mount Desert Island, Maine.....
How big was the tide change? Large tide changes and bottom contours can combine to create random standing waves and whirlpools - we had a similar experience years ago off Trial Is near Victoria, and also outside Porlier pass when we transited early at the tail end of a big flood.
