Tide tables and solunar tables for sport fishers in Porthcawl. 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 Porthcawl ...
We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Tides4fishing allows you to make tide predictions for Porthcawl years in advance. Please note that the data are approximations only valid for fishing and so IS NOT VALID FOR NAVIGATION.
Today Wednesday, 27th of May of 2015, the sun will rise in Porthcawl at 5:08 h and sunset will be at 21:18 h. The moon set at 2:31 h at 274º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (89º) at 14:38 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 1:30 h and the next high tide will be at 14:15 h. The first low tide will be at 7:55 h and the next low tide at 20:15 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 16 hours and 10 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 13:13 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 53 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 47, 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 increases to 50 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 54. The tide heights today are 7.7 m, 3.1 m, 7.7 m and 3.4 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Porthcawl which is of 10.7 m and a minimum height of 0.2 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Porthcawl 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 2:31 h to 3:31 h, low activity minor period (moonset)
from 8:34 h to 10:34 h, average activity Major period (moon down)
from 14:38 h to 15:38 h, low activity minor period (moonrise)
from 20:46 h to 22:46 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
Tide timetable for Porthcawl. The times are generated in local time in Wales 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 Porthcawl 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).
