Today Sunday, 4th of October of 2015, the sun will rise in Maputo at 5:26 h and sunset will be at 17:51 h. Today we can see the moonset on the horizon at 290º west at 10:40 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 1:40 h and the next low tide will be at 14:00 h. The first high tide will be at 7:50 h and the next high tide at 20:10 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 12 hours and 25 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 11:38 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 40 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 45, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 42 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 41. The tide heights today are 1.1 m, 2.8 m, 1.2 m and 2.7 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 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 5:05 h to 7:05 h, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 10:40 h to 11:40 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 17:31 h to 19:31 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
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).
