A fun adventure!

This hands-on experience with octopus is not to be missed. The guide is friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the octopus giving information about the mission of the group while allowing visitors time to interact with many different octopi. They conclude the experience with allowing guests to feed an octopus.

Up and Close With Octopus
Jul. 2021 • Family
My family had a great time learning about and playing with the octopuses. The guide gave us lots of information while the creatures wrapped their tentacles around their colorful toys and our hands/fingers. One octopus was hilarious and wanted ALL the toys - she didn’t want us to have any. Super cute :)

Totally recommended!

We loved this tour--knowledgable biologists led the discussion, but the best part? They let you play with the adult octopuses! Just a hand inside the tank or with some toys, but it was fantastic. You also get to feed them a crab claw at the end of the tour. The whole family adored it.

Highlight of Granddaughter’s trip
Jul. 2021 • Family
The Octopus farm was very educational for all ages. We enjoyed the very personal interaction with several of the Octopus and gained a whole new respect for these intelligent species. My teen granddaughter says this was the highlight of her vacation!

Well worth the visit.
Jul. 2021
Our family had a wonderful time communing with the Octopi. All 6 of us had the opportunity to "shake hands" so to speak. It is a small research facility, so the guides know a lot about these cephalopods. We all had the opportunity to learn a bit more about these fascinating creatures. None of us wanted to leave at the end of the hour tour. Well worth the visit.

10/10 Do it again
Jul. 2021 • Solo
We had an absolute blast! You get to put your hands in and try to entice the octopuses to touch you, and the guide was super informative. I think his name was Ryan. It made us feel better that despite the name they are a research facility trying to cut down on octopus fishing by learning how to raise octopuses on land. 10/10 would recommend!
