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.

To start with, there is infact a lot of confusion about the marine national park in gujarat. There is very little information available on the internet. Even the pamphlet they give at the office is in gujarati language. Basically MNP is the group of nearly 40 islands located in the gulf of kutch in the district of jamnagar. These islands... More

Narara Marine Park (approx. 50+kms from Jamnagar city) is a very good place to see the rich marine biodiversity. Unfortunately, this place is rarely spoken about in the print media or by the state level tour operators. Ideal time to visit this place is during the winters. Please check the timings of the tide before starting your beach/floor walk. It’s... More

We visited there on the December of 2005 as a part of our zoological excursion. Our initial plans were to go to the Pirotan island but because of some unavoidable reasons eventually we went to Narara sea bed. It is around 30 mins from the Jamnagar city. The sea beach is exposed at times of low tide which leaves behind... More

the kids and us loved the experience. did feel some guilt that we as visitors may inadvertently cause environmental damage by walking all over the corals. be careful where you step and leave it as you found it.
