Today Wednesday, 4th of March of 2015, the sun rose in Bar Harbor at 6:04 am and sunset will be at 5:25 pm. The moon set at 5:19 am at 282º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (80º) at 4:39 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 11 hours and 21 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 11:44 am and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 40 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 82, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 84 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 86. The tide heights today are 0.7 ft, 11.2 ft, 0.0 ft and 10.8 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Bar Harbor which is of 13.5 ft and a minimum height of -2.3 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Bar Harbor tells us that today is a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 5:19 am to 6:19 am, high activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:59 am to 12:59 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 4:39 pm to 5:39 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 11:13 pm to 1:13 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Bar Harbor. The times are generated in local time in Maine 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 Bar Harbor 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).
