Today Wednesday, 28th of January of 2015, the sun rose in Esquimalt Lagoon at 7:47 am and sunset was at 5:07 pm. The moon set at 2:23 am at 294º northwest. Then, the moon rose at 65º northeast at 12:16 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the high tide was at 10:40 am and the low tide was at 9:00 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we had 9 hours and 20 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 7 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 48, 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. to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 50. The tide heights today are 0.6 m and -0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Esquimalt Lagoon which is of 1.1 m and a minimum height of -0.3 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Esquimalt Lagoon 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 2:23 am to 3:23 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 7:19 am to 9:19 am, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:16 pm to 1:16 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 7:50 pm to 9:50 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Esquimalt Lagoon. 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 Esquimalt Lagoon 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).
