Seahorse world is a commercial breeder of seahorses and on you visit you will see learn all about their lifecycle and see hundreds if not thousands of seahorses, from tiny to full size. It is ideal for kids but adults will enjoy it too.

The visit was well worth it and interesting information by tour guide. Not often you get to see and learn about seahorses so was good for the whole family.

Yes it is a commercial farm but they are also involved in non commercial and conservation breeding programs. Close up educational experience for the children (and parents) and they loved the hands on part of the tour. Glad we did the tour.

The feed is given to you by the operators you cannot provide food for them yourself. This is a commercial operation.
