Today Wednesday, 5th of August of 2015, the sun rose in Pirates Bay at 7:16 am and sunset was at 5:13 pm. The moon set at 9:52 am at 276º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (80º) at 11:07 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we had 9 hours and 57 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:14 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 0 hours and 53 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 76, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 70 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 64. The tide heights today are 0.1 m, 0.8 m and 0.3 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Pirates Bay which is of 1.1 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Pirates Bay 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 3:54 am to 5:54 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 9:52 am to 10:52 am, high activity minor period (moonset)

[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Pirates 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).
