Today Thursday, 5th of March of 2015, the sun will rise in Sandspit (Makatana River) at 7:10 am and sunset will be at 7:56 pm.

Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (83º) at 7:26 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 1:58 am and the next low tide will be at 2:23 pm. The first high tide will be at 8:21 am and the next high tide at 8:46 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 12 hours and 46 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:33 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 57 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 86, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 87 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 87. The tide heights today are 0.8 m, 2.5 m, 0.8 m and 2.5 m.

NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Sandspit (Makatana River) 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).
