Today Tuesday, 11th of March of 2014, the sun will rise in Santa Cruz (Monterey Bay) at 7:22 am and sunset will be at 7:12 pm.

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 53 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 58. The tide heights today are 2.6 ft, 4.6 ft, 0.3 ft and 3.9 ft.
