Today Tuesday, 24th of November of 2015, the sun rose in Oak Island (Atlantic Ocean) at 6:53 am and sunset was at 5:05 pm. The moon set at 5:10 am at 284º west. Then, the moon rose at 74º east at 4:28 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 5:22 am and the next high tide at 5:50 pm. The first low tide was at 11:56 am and the next low tide will be at 11:59 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we had 10 hours and 12 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 11:59 am and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 42 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 100. 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 102 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 103. The tide heights today are 6.2 ft, -0.3 ft, 5.6 ft and -0.7 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Oak Island (Atlantic Ocean) which is of 6.9 ft and a minimum height of -1.3 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Oak Island (Atlantic Ocean) 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 5:10 am to 6:10 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 10:49 am to 12:49 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 4:28 pm to 5:28 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 11:22 pm to 1:22 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Oak Island (Atlantic Ocean). The times are generated in local time in North Carolina 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 Oak Island (Atlantic Ocean) 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).
