Today Sunday, 21th of December of 2014, the sun rose in Cairns at 5:41 am and sunset was at 6:49 pm. The moon rose in the southeast (109º) at 4:41 am and set in the southwest (251º) at 5:57 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 1:55 am and the next low tide at 2:45 pm. The first high tide was at 8:35 am and the next high tide at 8:10 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Crescent. Today we had 13 hours and 8 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:15 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 16 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 93. 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 96 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 97. The tide heights today are 0.4 m, 2.9 m, 1.1 m and 2.3 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cairns which is of 3.3 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cairns 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 4:41 am to 5:41 am, 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 11:19 am to 1:19 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 5:57 pm to 6:57 pm, 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
from 11:47 pm to 1:47 am, very high activity Major period (moon down)
Tide timetable for Cairns. The times are generated in local time in Queensland. 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 Cairns 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).
