Today Friday, 28th of August of 2015, the sun will rise in Tumbes at 6:22 am and sunset will be at 6:24 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 5:08 am at 257º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (101º) at 5:32 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide will be at 3:22 am and the next high tide at 3:30 pm. The first low tide will be at 9:43 am and the next low tide at 9:59 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 12 hours and 2 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:23 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 36 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 99. 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 104 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 108. The tide heights today are 2.1 m, 0.4 m, 2.1 m and 0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Tumbes which is of 2.7 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Tumbes 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 5:08 am to 6:08 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 11:20 am to 1:20 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 5:32 pm to 6:32 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 11:48 pm to 1:48 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Tumbes. The times are generated in local time in Tumbes. 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 Tumbes 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).
