12 hr 25 min

On an average, every place experiences high and low tide a day at an time interval of 12 hours 25 minutes. Since the earth completes its rotation in roughly 24 hours, every place should experience tide after 12 hours but this never happens. Each day tide delayed by 25 minutes because the moon also rotates on its axis while revolving around the earth.
