  • 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.
