Today Friday, 18th of April of 2014, the sun will rise in Opunake Bay at 6:55 am and sunset will be at 5:53 pm. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 9:34 am at 247º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (114º) at 7:56 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 5:26 am and the next low tide at 5:48 pm. The first high tide will be at 11:31 am and the next high tide at 11:53 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 10 hours and 58 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:24 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 38 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 84, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 79 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 75. The tide heights today are 0.4 m, 3.2 m, 0.4 m and 3.2 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 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. 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).
