Loved this unique opportunity to see and hold Seahorses up close. As an endangered species, it’s rare to see them in Aquariums, but this place is doing everything to prevent them from extinction. A great learning experience for everyone about our Marine life. Great photo...More

The guided tour takes about an hour during which you’ll learn a lot about seahorses. You’ll even hold one which is so cool. We really like the idea behind the farm and that the farm is independent. The guide has a lot to tell and...More

This really sweet setup. The tour is very informative and the company is trying to prevent wild seahorses from being captured. Some highlights are seeing the baby seahorses and getting to hold an actual seahorse.

Most of the area surrounding the tanks is rock so it would be difficult to traverse with a walker and/or wheelchair. You also need to get right up to the tanks and peer in to see the seahorses. The tanks are probably 4... More
