Today Sunday, 20th of April of 2014, the sun rose in Maputo at 6:08 h and sunset will be at 17:29 h.

The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we have 11 hours and 21 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 11:49 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 46 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 65 (average). At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 59 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 57. The tide heights today are 0.9 m, 3.0 m, 1.0 m and 3.0 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 a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 3:58 h to 5:58 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 10:51 h to 11:51 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 16:28 h to 18:28 h, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 22:05 h to 23:05 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
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).
