  • Outstanding. A lot of fun. Good docents explain the objectives, process and status. Get to have a seahorse wrapped around your fingers.
  • Amazing place! Must go! Go on the way to your hotel from the airport. Definitely worth it and for a great cause.
  • Great to see the latest in aquaculuture and get to hold a Seahorse! Guide was very informative and fun!
  • There was no information about new years day closure. Also they have a reservation process we didn't know about and no self guided tours. We were really excited about the farm but after two attempts we gave up.
  • Great learning experience! Staff knew their stuff. Very interesting! Good for kids and adults alike.

Where to stay in Kailua-Kona

If you wish to indulge yourself while on the Kona coastline of the "Big Island," book your stay at one of Kailua-Kona's fully furnished beachside villas, offering spa services, free Wi-Fi, and secure parking. You can also try one of the coastline's luxury resorts, featuring tennis courts, fitness centers, and on-site activities like hula lessons and diving classes. Smaller hotels a short drive from the city may not offer beach access, but they provide plenty of privacy at a fraction of the cost of the area's big resorts.
