Today Saturday, 18th of April of 2015, the sun rose in Port Beaufort at 7:02 h and sunset was at 18:10 h. The moon rose in the east (82º) at 6:26 h and set in the west (281º) at 18:06 h.

The lunar phase is a New Moon. Today we had 11 hours and 8 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:36 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 40 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 110. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 109 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 107. The tide heights today are 2.0 m, 0.2 m, 1.9 m and 0.2 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Port Beaufort which is of 2.0 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Port Beaufort tells us that today is an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 6:26 h to 7:26 h, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:16 h to 14:16 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 18:06 h to 19:06 h, very high activity minor period (moonset). 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 Port Beaufort. 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 Port Beaufort 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).
