Today Tuesday, 16th of September of 2014, the sun will rise in Walvis Bay at 6:57 h and sunset will be at 18:56 h. The moon rose in the east (70º) at 1:19 h and will set in the west (290º) at 12:37 h.

The lunar phase is a Last Quarter Moon. Today we will have 11 hours and 59 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:57 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 37 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 37, 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. to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 38. The tide heights today are 0.7 m, 1.3 m, 0.7 m and 1.3 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 an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. 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).
