Today Thursday, 30th of October of 2014, the sun rose in Cape May at 7:26 am and sunset will be at 6:01 pm. The moon rose in the southeast at an angle of 109º at 1:27 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we have 10 hours and 35 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:43 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 33 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 53 (average). At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 52 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 55. The tide heights today are 4.6 ft, 0.7 ft, 5.6 ft and 0.3 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cape May which is of 6.6 ft and a minimum height of -1.0 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cape May 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 6:18 am to 8:18 am, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 1:27 pm to 2:27 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 6:51 pm to 8:51 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Cape May. The times are generated in local time in New Jersey 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 Cape May 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).
