About the Walk

Colourful sea sponges, different types of snails and sea anemones, hermit crabs that use seashells as homes, and even corals. You can expect to find all these beautiful creatures at a blue, coastal destination, but they’re right here, at the watery, concretised edge of Mumbai city. At this bustling urban jungle’s doorstep, lies an entire forgotten marine world.


With the medium low tides coming this weekend, we've planned a shore walk at Haji Ali - our most popular rocky shore site on October 7, 2018.
 

From crabs to corals in the tide pools, and from hidden moray eels to near-invisible scorpionfish waiting for the keenest eyes, this shore has plenty of sights to see and some impressive stories about the city's marine life to tell.

 

This walk is free to attend but requires prior registration. Kindly register your attendance using the form below. To ensure that the walk is useful to all attendees, there is a limit on the number of participants, we will confirm via email if your spot has been confirmed.
