The tidal coefficient today is 98. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 93 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 88. The tide heights today are 12.5 ft, -1.6 ft, 11.8 ft and -1.0 ft.

Tide timetable for Castine. 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 Castine 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).
