  • Darwin's cafe served us a very delicious take on tuna poke with some ice coffee that was absolutely delectable after a stroll in the gardens. There are easy paths to take through the forest filled with unique plants from all over the world. The most interesting species were from Chile, definitely check it out!
  • Peaceful place to visit when passing by or when looking for a coffee. The garden is nice to explore and read about.
  • Great place to learn about many sea creatures you may see in the area. All animals released at end of season.
  • Beautiful way to spend an hour or two exploring a huge garden in an old growth forest. Sculptures throughout the peaceful retreat.
  • Did it on a rainy day was nice. Alot bigger then I thought and alot more stuff. Right by the ocean :)
