Barview free diving and tides

Are tides a large consideration at barview when freediving spearfishing? Do you need to dive around slack tide?

Slack is the only time you can dive it. Get in an hour before high tide, get out an hour after. Any other time it has a ripping current.

Yup!

Otherwise, you're zipping along so fast you can hardly see the fish as they blur by.

Not that I've ever personally tried anything that stupid.
