  • This was an amazing experience. It was good to learn about what this project is doing for the ocean life of the Sea Horses. How they are working to stop the pet stores corporations from grabbing wild seahorses to sell, and what happens to them. There are many of these fish near extinction..
  • Very cool. Very educational and fun. For youngsters and adults. Feed and have a seahorse hang onto your finger. Seeing the seahorses and the almost other worldly seadragons... out standing. Gives everyone a basic primer on aquaculture and what we all need to focus on when buying seafood. As consumers, we need to be part of the solution and not the problem.
  • Great learning experience. The tour guide is very clear and you can tell she loves what she does
  • This is one of the coolest things I've done in my life.... amazing work being done on sight
  • Very unique experience. We learned a lot of things about seahorses! Interacting with one at the end is definately the highlight!
