The tide was never high enough to float the airplane unless there was also big surf, in which case nobody is going to be going anywhere near the airplane.

Time zones map for 2007
 
Many internet sites on time zones and the International Date Line still give incomplete or out-dated information, one of the very few that does give a correct depiction is www.worldtimezone.com.

The link that Sheila gave in 2011 is not very accessible for the sight impaired.

I am told that a more accessible, WCAG 2.0 compatible version is www.thetimenow.com.

That is a purely text-based website.

Here is a large map from UNEC net that may be more legible:

That map is a pretty good reference for current time zones but they have Kiribati wrong. Sine 2000, all of Kiribati is in a single time zone due to a huge jog inserted in the International Dateline.

Try, try again.  From "World of Maps," the likely source for the 1995 map above:
