  • I loved this place because is a cool hands on and organic place. Operated by just a few biologist and volunteers. I couldn't imagine there could be any information that would make me think an octopus could be a very friendly and lovable creature, but they can be. We were taught how to handle them gently. We got to feed them, and we had the opportunity to actually see new born octopuses. Each octopus had their own unique personality. I loved learning about this unique creature. They also have a small gift shop that adults and kids alike would enjoy. If you go, you need to register on line to get your tickets. It's a must go to adventure.
  • This is an affordable fun activity for families! Go and support a very worthwhile project. You actually get to play with the octopus and it's amazing. We went with low expectations and this place blew us away! I would definitely recommend for any families on the big island looking for affordable activities.
