You can browse and download level 2 files (OC) that contain chlor_a here, you can limit your region to Persian Gulf -- https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi/browse.pl

You can download level 3 binned or mapped files that contain chlor_a here -- https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/directdataaccess/

You can download SeaDAS software here to visualize the level 2 and level 3 mapped files -- https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/downloads/
