At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 97 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 100. The tide heights today are 2.1 m, 0.5 m, 2.2 m and 0.2 m.

The solunar fishing calendar in Ford Point 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 5:17 h to 6:17 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 11:37 h to 13:37 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 17:58 h to 18:58 h, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
Tide timetable for Ford Point. The times are generated in local time in Nigeria. 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 Ford Point 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).
