Today Thursday, 30th of July of 2015, the sun will rise in Opunake Bay at 7:31 am and sunset will be at 5:31 pm. The moon set at 5:53 am at 247º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (112º) at 4:18 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 2:21 am and the next low tide will be at 2:43 pm. The first high tide will be at 8:27 am and the next high tide at 8:53 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 10 hours and 0 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:31 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 35 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 92. 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 97 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 100. The tide heights today are 0.6 m, 3.0 m, 0.4 m and 3.3 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Opunake Bay which is of 3.6 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Opunake Bay 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:
Tide timetable for Opunake Bay. The times are generated in local time in Taranaki 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 Opunake Bay 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).
