Solution

High tides occur when the moon is in its first and last quarter.

Explanation:

When the Earth, moon, and sun coincide during a full or new moon, spring tides form, producing higher and lower than usual tides. Neap tides take place during the first and third quarters of the moon, when the moon and sun are at right angles to the Earth and provide low and high tides with little variation in height.
