Today Tuesday, 21th of October of 2014, the sun rose in Nanaimo at 7:48 am and sunset was at 6:13 pm. The moon rose in the east (93º) at 5:25 am and set in the west (264º) at 5:20 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 5:00 am and the next high tide at 4:40 pm. The first low tide was at 10:40 am and the next low tide will be at 11:20 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Crescent. Today we had 10 hours and 25 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 1:00 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 18 hours and 35 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 79, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 83 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 86. The tide heights today are 3.7 m, 2.3 m, 4.1 m and 1.6 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 5:25 am to 6:25 am, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 11:22 am to 1:22 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 5:20 pm to 6:20 pm, high activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 11:54 pm to 1:54 am, very high activity Major period (moon down)
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).
