Today Thursday, 5th of March of 2015, the sun will rise in Maputo at 5:46 h and sunset will be at 18:17 h. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 5:20 h at 277º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (85º) at 18:02 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 4:10 h and the next high tide will be at 16:20 h. The first low tide will be at 10:20 h and the next low tide at 22:30 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 12 hours and 31 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:01 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 18 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 86, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 87 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 87. The tide heights today are 3.2 m, 0.8 m, 3.3 m and 0.7 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Maputo which is of 3.5 m and a minimum height of 0.5 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Maputo tells us that today is an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 5:20 h to 6:20 h, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:41 h to 13:41 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 18:02 h to 19:02 h, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
Tide timetable for Maputo. The times are generated in local time in Mozambique. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Maputo are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
