  • A great place to visit! Very easy and quick to get to. The people who run it are very nice. Nice small gift shop, too. I will go back again.
  • I have several Ocean Rider Seahorses in my dedicated aquarium. Each one is a treasure. I have been in the hobby for 30 years, first with wildcaught and then with captive bred ponies. I have horses in my tank from two farms and all are beautiful, but the OR seahorses have so much personality! I delight in watching and interacting with them daily and am always fascinated by their personality development over time. OR KNOWS what they're doing and I am SO grateful that they are preserving this endangered species.
