The lunar phase is a Waning Crescent. Today we had 14 hours and 8 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 1:19 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 15 hours and 34 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 43, 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 46 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 49. The tide heights today are 3.9 m, 1.4 m, 3.8 m and 3.3 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Nanaimo which is of 4.9 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.

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