Fun experience to learn about and interact with seahorses. You get to feed and hold a seahorse. Also go to see live tilapia.

Very cool mission and experience. This place is not only contributing directly to the conservation of a species (by eliminating the need to capture wild seahorses and repopulating those lost as fishing collateral damage) but the are also providing people with a rare encounter. Once you seen a seahorse actively swim over to you, fed them and held them it's hard not to feel connected and responsible. My only reservation is that the entry price ($75) is way too high for most people. We did it to contribute, but even we weren't able to convince other family members into coming. I'm sure it's difficult to manage the significant expense of maintaining the farm, but being more accessible is key to real support and success in most missions. We really enjoyed the experience and would love to support the mission!
Admire their mission, doing all they can to save seahorses from being farmed for aquariums. The exposure to the tiny little seahorses to the full grown seahorses is legit, and they manage your being able to hold one very well. Very nice people working there, and of course you get to exit through the gift shop. 😁
