You can see sea horse in different colors, orange, yellow, black etc.. you can see nemo and his friend. They want to preserve this crazy animal, show you his fragility. The price is very tchip and you make a good experience.

Although the project is a great iniciative, I thought visiting would be quite boring. For my great surprise it turned out to be very relaxing and interesting experience. The place was beautiful and my 1 year old daughter was amazed with the seahorses.

Small sea aquarium, with some fish species and, mostly, seahorses. Nothing much. It costs R$ 4,00 to get in and it's basically an average room, with 3 rows of tanks. You can do this in less than 20 minutes, really.

Great so see a project where they are working on survival of the seahorse. Outside of the village in the river delta are a couple of places where they still live in the wild. The displays are a 30 some old aquariums (at least that’s how they look) with many of them containing seahorses. Not a lot of English around... More

Projeto Hippocampus is a small research and viewing center in Porto de Galinhas, geared towards the study and preservation of Brazilian seahorses. This was actually part of our dune buggy tour of the area, stopping here for about 45 minutes to check out the dozens of aquariums filled with many different seahorse and other marine species. I wouldn't say that... More
