Today Monday, 15th of September of 2014, the sun rose in Nanaimo at 6:54 am and sunset was at 7:27 pm. The moon set at 2:29 pm at 299º northwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the northeast (61º) at 11:45 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 5:05 am and the next low tide at 5:40 pm. The first high tide was at 12:35 pm and the next high tide will be at 10:35 pm.
The lunar phase is a Last Quarter Moon. Today we had 12 hours and 33 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 1:11 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 44 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 45, 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 drops to 40 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 37. The tide heights today are 1.4 m, 3.9 m, 3.1 m and 3.8 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.
The solunar fishing calendar in Nanaimo 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 6:43 am to 8:43 am, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 2:29 pm to 3:29 pm, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 7:07 pm to 9:07 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:45 pm to 12:45 am, high activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Nanaimo. 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 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).
