Today Thursday, 30th of July of 2015, the sun rose in Cowichan Bay at 5:47 am and sunset will be at 8:55 pm. The moon set at 5:03 am at 244º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (114º) at 8:12 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 3:00 am and the next high tide will be at 6:35 pm. The first low tide was at 10:45 am and the next low tide will be at 11:10 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 15 hours and 8 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 1:21 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 8 hours and 51 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 92. 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 97 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 100. The tide heights today are 3.3 m, 0.5 m, 3.4 m and 2.7 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 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 12:14 am to 2:14 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 5:03 am to 6:03 am, high activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 12:37 pm to 2:37 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 8:12 pm to 9:12 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
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).
