Tides - History, Theories Of Tidal Action, Variables Affecting Tidal Forces, Tide Tables, Semidiurnal And Diurnal Tides

bodies

Tides are deformations in the shape of a body caused by the gravitational force of one or more other bodies. All bodies in the universe exert tidal forces on each other, although the effects are generally too small to observe. As far Earth is concerned, the most important tidal phenomena are the ocean and ground tides that occur as a result of the Moon's and the Sun's gravity.

I would like to know why the highest tides where I live (Hawaii) only reach 2.6 feet and in other palces the tides are significantely higher and lower. I know from some research the bottom of the ocean and land formations affect this but the facts are still a little confusing.
Can you explain this better?
Mahalo,
Mike
