Today Friday, 27th of February of 2015, the sun rose in Cowichan Bay at 6:58 am and sunset was at 5:56 pm. The moon set at 3:11 am at 298º northwest. Then, the moon rose at 62º northeast at 12:34 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 1:30 am and the next high tide at 11:05 am. The first low tide was at 5:50 am and the next low tide at 6:50 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we had 10 hours and 58 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:27 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 37 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 42, 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 45 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 49. The tide heights today are 3.0 m, 2.7 m, 3.1 m and 1.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cowichan Bay which is of 3.7 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cowichan Bay tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
Tide timetable for Cowichan Bay. The times are generated in local time in British Columbia 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 Cowichan 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).
