Tide tables and solunar tables for sport fishers in Cape Agulhas. 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 Cape Agulhas ...
We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Sunday, 5th of July of 2015, the sun rose in Cape Agulhas at 7:47 h and sunset was at 17:41 h. The moon set at 10:04 h at 258º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (100º) at 21:41 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 5:30 h and the next high tide at 17:55 h. The only low tide of the day was at 11:40 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we had 9 hours and 54 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:44 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 23 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 88, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 84 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 81. The tide heights today are 1.7 m, 0.3 m and 1.8 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cape Agulhas which is of 2.0 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cape Agulhas 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:
| from 3:19 h to 5:19 h, average activity Major period (moon up)
from 10:04 h to 11:04 h, low activity minor period (moonset)
from 15:52 h to 17:52 h, average activity Major period (moon down). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 21:41 h to 22:41 h, low activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Cape Agulhas. The times are generated in local time in South Africa. 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 Cape Agulhas 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).
