Best area for exploring the Marine treasures

Please check the tide timings before visiting. One should go at least 3 hours after high tide time. You can confirm the tide timings with Mr. Mustak at Hotel President.

Awesome place to explore the unexplored water life

Fantastic place to visit. 60km from Jamnagar city to reach only can enter during low tide, when water retreats away. Proper permission from forest office required on spot and guide provided by them too. Obey the rules of forest and do not harm the sea animals. Just wander away in ankle-water on the sea shore. Lots of Corals seen in various colours and shapes. Search for Sea Cucumber, Puffer Fish, Octopus, Crabs, Starfish, Jellyfish, Sea Anemone, Sponge, Molluscs, Algae, Turtle, Exotic flowers and lot more. A complete fabulous experience of water life.

Amazing coral walk without going under the sea water

Narara Marine National Park is about 60km. Away from Jamnagar (Gujarat) towards Dwarka. You must get all information from Hotel President (Jamnagar) regarding the timing to visit there. If you want to enjoy, then first of all reach there on time, collect the permit from forest department checkpoint and hire a guide(this will cost 400/- +300/-). Dress-up for knee deep water; take sunglass and most important wear good sports shoe. You should carry 500 ml of drinking water as you wouldnt resist yourself to walk inside the sea bed up to 3 km or more. You can see and touch variety of hard and soft coral there including Puffer fish (few variety of puffer fish are believed to be poisonous).
