Today Tuesday, 4th of August of 2015, the sun will rise in Santa Monica at 6:08 am and sunset will be at 7:52 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 10:53 am at 274º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (83º) at 10:55 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 12:20 am and the next high tide will be at 1:20 pm. The first low tide will be at 6:50 am and the next low tide at 7:28 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 13 hours and 44 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:00 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 58 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 88, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 82 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 76. The tide heights today are 5.2 ft, 0.0 ft, 5.2 ft and 1.3 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Santa Monica which is of 7.2 ft and a minimum height of -1.6 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Santa Monica 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 4:33 am to 6:33 am, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:53 am to 11:53 am, average activity minor period (moonset)
from 4:54 pm to 6:54 pm, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 10:55 pm to 11:55 pm, average activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Santa Monica. The times are generated in local time in California 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 Santa Monica 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 feet 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).
