How to Fix a 1/2 -1 Inch Gap Between Tile and Tub Joined Area?

Our tub/shower has a 1/2 -1 inch gap where the tile meets the tub. Can we fill this in with grout, if so how do we do this?

One inch is too large to fill with caulk or grout.  The grout will crack over time and fall out.and the caulk will not set in time to fill the gap without sagging.  You may want to get some sort of plastic or PVC moulding and use silicone to glue it to the tub and tile.  Quarter round or flat stock will work.  You can grout the gap first and let it dry for a few days and then secure the moulding over top of it.  Use a matching color grout and a sponge float to force the grout into the gap.  After about 15 or 20 minutes, use a damp sponge to wipe off the grout from the tile without removing the grout from the joint.
