Today Wednesday, 2nd of December of 2015, the sun will rise in Cape St. Francis at 5:02 h and sunset will be at 19:18 h. Today we can see the moonset on the horizon at 281º west at 11:14 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 1:20 h and the next low tide will be at 13:55 h. The first high tide will be at 7:45 h and the next high tide at 19:55 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 14 hours and 16 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:10 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 14 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 45, 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. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 42 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 42. The tide heights today are 0.6 m, 1.5 m, 0.8 m and 1.4 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cape St. Francis which is of 2.2 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cape St. Francis 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 5:32 h to 7:32 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 11:14 h to 12:14 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 17:49 h to 19:49 h, very high activity Major period (moon down). 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 Cape St. Francis. 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 St. Francis 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).
