Its a very nice place to visit for the people who loves nature. Can see many of the marine lives. But need to take care of few things, like visit only during start of low tides, and in winter season with Cam, boots and drinking water..

The marine national park is an awesome place to visit, lots of marine animals are visible, but even drinking water is not available closeby, so be prepared, take some food and water along

Its a great place to experience marine life while walking in the shallow seas created by the daily tides. Timing visit with the low tides is a must. Added attraction is to watch various plovers and waders. I was unlucky that we could not spot the crab plover that day while the other groups had much luck photographing them on... More

The most important tip for a visit to this park is ... visit it at the start of the low tide to view maximum marine life. Later on in the day with crowds increasing the marine activity is very limited. You will need a guide for the park visit as he will show u different creatures under the coral rocks.... More

This place is located around 45 kms from jamnagar. Most important thing is to reach the place at correct time i.e when the tides are low otherwise your trip would be wasted. You can check about timing from the phone no given in gujarat tourism website. After reaching there hire a guide else you wont find any of the fishes,... More

The Marine National Park is an amazing hidden treasure - hardly talked about - hardly advertised. Maybe its good that way - to avoid interference by hordes of visitors. Was able to see some beautiful marine life there. Maybe the place could be better maintained.
