Today Wednesday, 1st of October of 2014, the sun rose in Grand Cayman at 6:16 am and sunset will be at 6:13 pm. The moon rose in the southeast at an angle of 109º at 12:43 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the low tide was at 8:07 am and the high tide will be at 5:11 pm.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we have 11 hours and 57 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:15 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 17 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 49, 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 48 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 50. The tide heights today are 0.3 ft and 1.6 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Grand Cayman which is of 2.0 ft and a minimum height of -1.0 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Grand Cayman 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 6:00 am to 8:00 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 12:43 pm to 1:43 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 6:29 pm to 8:29 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Grand Cayman. The times are generated in local time in Jamaica. 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 Grand Cayman 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 feet 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).
