Today Saturday, 28th of March of 2015, the sun will rise in Portland at 7:43 am and sunset will be at 7:34 pm. The moon set at 12:55 am at 293º northwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the northeast (68º) at 3:21 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide will be at 3:20 am and the next high tide at 6:00 pm. The first low tide will be at 10:30 am and the next low tide at 11:15 pm.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we will have 11 hours and 51 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:39 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 9 hours and 34 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 39, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 42 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 45. The tide heights today are 0.8 m, 0.3 m, 0.8 m and 0.7 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Portland which is of 1.2 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.

Tide timetable for Portland. The times are generated in local time in Victoria and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. 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 Portland 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).
