Tide tables and solunar tables for sport fishers in Dover. Find out the forecast for high tides and low tides before setting out to fish, and other fishing-related data such as the lunar phase, tidal coefficient, sun and moon rising and setting times, hours of maximum fish activity, weather conditions in Dover ...
We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Tides4fishing allows you to make tide predictions for Dover years in advance. Please note that the data are approximations only valid for fishing and so IS NOT VALID FOR NAVIGATION.
Today Friday, 12th of February of 2016, the sun rose in Dover at 7:13 h and sunset was at 17:05 h. The moon rose in the east (84º) at 9:04 h and will set in the west (280º) at 22:20 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 1:10 h and the next high tide at 13:35 h. The first low tide was at 8:50 h and the next low tide will be at 21:05 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we had 9 hours and 52 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:09 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 16 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 91. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 84 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 78. The tide heights today are 7.0 m, 0.6 m, 6.9 m and 0.8 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Dover which is of 7.2 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Dover 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:
| from 3:03 h to 5:03 h, average activity Major period (moon down)
from 9:04 h to 10:04 h, low activity minor period (moonrise)
from 15:42 h to 17:42 h, average activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 22:20 h to 23:20 h, low activity minor period (moonset)
Tide timetable for Dover. The times are generated in local time in England 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 Dover 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).
