Today Monday, 27th of April of 2015, the sun will rise in Mossel Bay at 7:04 h and sunset will be at 17:54 h. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 0:53 h at 284º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (78º) at 14:17 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 5:05 h and the next low tide at 17:20 h. The first high tide will be at 11:20 h and the next high tide at 23:55 h.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we will have 10 hours and 50 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:29 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 36 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 43, 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 increases to 47 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 51. The tide heights today are 0.9 m, 1.5 m, 0.9 m and 1.6 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Mossel Bay which is of 2.2 m and a minimum height of 0.2 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Mossel 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:
Tide timetable for Mossel Bay. 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 Mossel 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).
