    Cool In accordance with the tides?

    Hi,

    Is it correct to say: "We leave the town when the tides are low" or "We leave the town in accordance with the tides"?

    It's about a trip by 4X4 jeep on the shore that may only be possible when the tides are low.

    We can leave town only at low tide.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You can also say when the tide is out.
