Today Saturday, 5th of September of 2015, the sun rose in Mangawhai Heads at 6:37 am and sunset will be at 6:04 pm. The moon rose in the east (70º) at 12:12 am and set in the northwest (291º) at 10:56 am.

The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we have 11 hours and 27 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:21 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 44 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 45 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 44. The tide heights today are 3.4 m, 0.4 m, 3.2 m and 0.6 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Mangawhai Heads which is of 3.6 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Mangawhai Heads tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 12:12 am to 1:12 am, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 5:34 am to 7:34 am, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:56 am to 11:56 am, average activity minor period (moonset)
from 6:04 pm to 8:04 pm, high activity Major period (moon down). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
Tide timetable for Mangawhai Heads. The times are generated in local time in Northland 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 Mangawhai Heads 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).
