We arrived only half hour before it closed. The owner not only gave us a discount on the entry fees, but also waited for us patiently (we stayed beyond the opening hours). What an amazing experience!

It's a breeding farm more than an aquarium. The best experience is you can hold and feel live seahorses.

They breed seahorses mostly for sale for aquariums and let shops. You get to see the breeding stages behind the scenes and touch a seahorse. The tour was very informative. Allow an hour here

Seahorse world is an excellent tourist experience while being entertaining and educational. The best part by far is the touch pool where seahorses will wrap around your finger while starfish walk below. Seahorse World has a great giftshop with something for all budgets.

Seahorse world is a commercial breeder of seahorses and on you visit you will see learn all about their lifecycle and see hundreds if not thousands of seahorses, from tiny to full size. It is ideal for kids but adults will enjoy it too.

The visit was well worth it and interesting information by tour guide. Not often you get to see and learn about seahorses so was good for the whole family.

The feed is given to you by the operators you cannot provide food for them yourself. This is a commercial operation.
