Today Monday, 10th of March of 2014, the sun rose in Kaikoura at 7:15 am and sunset will be at 7:56 pm. The moon set at 12:59 am at 296º northwest. Then, the moon rose at 64º northeast at 3:54 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 12:50 am and the next high tide at 1:18 pm. The first low tide was at 7:09 am and the next low tide will be at 7:27 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 12 hours and 41 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 1:36 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 9 hours and 5 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 38, 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 increases to 42 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 47. The tide heights today are 1.7 m, 0.5 m, 1.7 m and 0.5 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Kaikoura which is of 2.1 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Kaikoura tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods.

[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Kaikoura 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).
