Do you mean the tidal bulge?
the Moon must fall into the ocean.
Because tides are an extreme example of a shallow-water wave, friction with the ocean floor slows tides to a speed of about 700 kilometers per hour (435 miles per hour). https://www.encyclopedia.com/earth-and-environment/geology-and-oceanography/geology-and-oceanography/tides
But tidal waves (tsunamis) move without moving water relative to the surface of the earth and they can not wipe the ocean floor.
The main tsunami (tides) raced across the Pacific Ocean ....
The idea of a single speed for the tidal bulge makes no sense.It obviously varies enormously with latitude.
what is the speed of the tidal wave at the equator?

Enter the speed in km / h.
