Find out the forecast for high tides and low tides before setting out to fish, and other fishing-related data such as the lunar phase, tidal coefficient, sun and moon rising and setting times, hours of maximum fish activity, weather conditions in Walvis Bay ...
We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Sunday, 14th of February of 2016, the sun will rise in Walvis Bay at 6:50 h and sunset will be at 19:42 h. The moon will emerge in the east at an angle of 77º at 12:37 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 1:15 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 20:25 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we will have 12 hours and 52 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 13:16 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 23 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 64 (average). At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 58 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 53. The tide heights today are 0.4 m, 1.7 m, 0.5 m and 1.5 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Walvis Bay which is of 2.1 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Walvis Bay 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 6:03 h to 8:03 h, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:37 h to 13:37 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 18:27 h to 20:27 h, very high activity Major period (moon up). 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 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).
