We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Thursday, 31th of July of 2014, the sun rose in Walvis Bay at 6:36 h and sunset was at 17:40 h. The moon rose in the east (91º) at 9:08 h and will set in the west (267º) at 21:34 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 4:55 h and the next high tide at 17:15 h. The first low tide was at 10:40 h and the next low tide will be at 23:05 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we had 11 hours and 4 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:08 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 26 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 70, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 66 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 63. The tide heights today are 1.6 m, 0.4 m, 1.6 m and 0.4 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Walvis Bay which is of 2.0 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Walvis Bay tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
Tide timetable for Walvis Bay. The times are generated in local time in Namibia and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. 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 Walvis Bay 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).
