The tidal coefficient today is 108. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 111 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 113. The tide heights today are -1.3 ft, 12.1 ft, -1.0 ft and 13.1 ft.

| from 12:00 am to 2:00 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 5:33 am to 6:33 am, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:20 pm to 2:20 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 7:07 pm to 8:07 pm, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing

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).
