| from 4:02 h to 6:02 h, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 9:39 h to 10:39 h, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 16:31 h to 18:31 h, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 23:24 h to 0:24 h, average activity minor period (moonset)

NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Port Alfred 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).
