The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 11 hours and 49 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:29 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 47 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 92. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 97 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 100. The tide heights today are 3.0 m, 0.8 m, 3.6 m and 0.5 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Dar es Salaam which is of 4.2 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Dar es Salaam 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 5:18 h to 6:18 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 11:24 h to 13:24 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 17:31 h to 18:31 h, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 23:52 h to 1:52 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Dar es Salaam. The times are generated in local time in Tanzania. 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:

NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Dar es Salaam 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).
