Today Thursday, 5th of March of 2015, the sun will rise in Tapa Bay at 6:50 am and sunset will be at 7:08 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 12 hours and 18 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:59 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 27 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 86, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 87 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 87. The tide heights today are 2.3 m, 6.0 m, 1.6 m and 6.6 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Tapa Bay which is of 7.5 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.

| from 12:08 am to 2:08 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 6:12 am to 7:12 am, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:28 pm to 2:28 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)

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