The entry to the park is allowed only during the low tides. You need to pick up the permit at the entrance forest office and also the guide is alooted here. The guide charges are additional and directly paid to the guide. The guides are local people so no English but they do manage decent Hindi. As the entry is... More

This marine park will give you goose bumps. It will be your life time experience. One has to take a walk of almost 3-5 km into the sea in shallow water. A lot of marine creatures will be seen here and that too live near you. Octopus, sea cucumber, various types of colourful crabs, puffers fish and many other creatures... More

Please call the guide in advance and find out the timings of the low tide when you can actually enter the park. This is very important as the timings change everyday and there is no official information available anywhere. The guides know best...ask them a few days in advance and book them for the tour. Going without a guide is... More

A commendable enterprise to preserve and conserve Nature - the flora and fauna in the sea. One can get the first hand experience to watch and observe even Octopus and other rare marine animals. But the fact that the number of people and the kind or tourists are allowed to roam around without a guide or a guard is a... More

Narara! It's one of those places safely hidden from unwanted human attention :) 55-60kms away from Jamnagar, Narara is a must visit place if you want a unique touch to your trip. of course being a marine life sanctuary visiting hours are at a mercy of high and low tides. You have to make sure you reach there approximately 2... More

Firstly the place is very little highlighted . Hardly any driver knows the road to Narara . I had to use GPS navigation to figure out the road and instructed the driver accordingly . Secondly , the final 15 Km approach road to the park is really very bad and full of potholes . Thirdly , the infrastructure at the... More

I visited this place from Jamnagar from where, it is a one day trip. Just 55 kilometers one way. One your way back one can even find time to watch a movie at the Reliance Mart near Sikka. One important thing is to schedule your visit with the low tide preferably one to two hours after the low tide started.... More
