Today Saturday, 25th of April of 2015, the sun rose in Tauranga at 6:50 am and sunset was at 5:37 pm. The moon rose in the northeast (69º) at 12:35 pm and will set in the west (290º) at 11:13 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we had 10 hours and 47 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:13 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 38 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 41, 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 39 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 39. The tide heights today are 0.4 m, 1.8 m and 0.3 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Tauranga which is of 2.1 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Tauranga 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 5:26 am to 7:26 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 12:35 pm to 1:35 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)

Tide timetable for Tauranga. The times are generated in local time in Bay of Plenty 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 Tauranga 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).
