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 Saturday, 5th of September of 2015, the sun rose in Dover at 6:15 h and sunset will be at 19:32 h. The moon set at 14:23 h at 299º northwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the northeast (61º) at 23:38 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 4:20 h and the next high tide at 16:50 h. The only low tide of the day was at 11:45 h.
The lunar phase is a Last Quarter Moon. Today we have 13 hours and 17 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:53 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 45 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 6.2 m, 1.4 m and 6.2 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 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 6:37 h to 8:37 h, high activity Major period (moon up)
from 14:23 h to 15:23 h, average activity minor period (moonset)
from 19:00 h to 21:00 h, 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
from 23:38 h to 0:38 h, average activity minor period (moonrise)
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).
