  • Do not go to octopus farm first. If you do octopus farm first you must wait 24 hours to do this tour. Great tour. And at the end you get to hold a seahorse. Lots of good information. But this tour is outside so bring bug repellent. You get to hold a seahorse for about 30 seconds.
  • Cool experience - if I had kids I would probably not go unless they were older...in fact, I think your children have to be at least five? It’s expensive but for a good cause. Not much to see to merit a return trip but I’m glad we went.
