I'm not savvy about the other spots to watch but here are the tide times and magnitudes (bearing in mind that they are a full foot higher than those in October!):

Tide tables are for Charlestown at the mouth of the Charles:
November 14 at 10:17 am 12.22 feet
November 15 at 11:08 am 12.45 feet
November 16 at Noon 12.42 feet

I suspect that you could see some interesting things happening along the South Boston waterfront and beaches as well, and Wollaston is T accessible, too.

Update with PSA: wherever you end up, be sure to consider your exit strategy. You may be high and dry, but may be some time before you can leave an area if you are flanked.

Taking the 130 Hingham Ferry might be interesting but it is watching the ripples when the tide is low around Peddocks is more fun.

Also getting off at Butler and a quick walk into the marsh might show a fun effect on the Neponset estuary.

Like coming ashore where it is not supposed to.

That's why Long Wharf is such a great spot.

Commercial wharf and Lewis wharf are also good. Expect the parking lot on Commercial to to get wet.

Morrissey blvd will flood. Tinean beach too.

There will be a short bike tour Wednesday, starting at Dewey Square Park at noon (next to the new mural), and wandering along the edges of Fort Point Channel and the downtown wharves.

Looks like tomorrow or Wednesday (not today) will be the more "active" days-hoping to get to the waterfront-weather and schedule permitting.
