Today Tuesday, 24th of November of 2015, the sun rose in Puntarenas at 5:38 am and sunset was at 5:15 pm. The moon set at 4:13 am at 282º west. Then, the moon rose at 76º east at 4:24 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we had 11 hours and 37 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 11:26 am and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 49 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 100. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 102 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 103. The tide heights today are 2.9 m, 0.1 m, 2.7 m and 0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Puntarenas which is of 3.3 m and a minimum height of -0.5 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Puntarenas 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 4:13 am to 5:13 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 10:18 am to 12:18 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 4:24 pm to 5:24 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:48 pm to 12:48 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Puntarenas. The times are generated in local time in Pacific Coast. 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 Puntarenas 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).
