The Moon acts like a strong magnet to the ocean. This means that it pulls and tugs at the surface of the ocean until it swells and rises up towards the moon. This causes a high tide. The ocean also swells out on the other side of the Earth from the Moon. This is because the pull of the moon is less on that side of the Earth.
