We tried to find this venue and never found the road where they were suppose to be. Supposedly there is an octopus farm nearby too! I don't believe they are open on the weekends either!

The Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm is unique. It was amazing to see baby seahorses just one day old (and only a few millimetres long) through to fully grown adults. The guides are friendly and well informed. The climax is to actually have a seahorse wrap his tail around your fingers in one of the tanks. They are to be congratulated... More

This tour was wonderful! It was interesting learning so much about these amazing creatures and awesome being able to see them up close. Our tour guide, Brittany, was great. She did an excellent job of making us all interested, aware and compassionate about the plight of the seahorse. The money from the tours goes right back into the operation. At... More

The Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm in Kona, Hawaii is saving these amazing fish from extinction through propagation of over 20 different seahorse species. If ever in Kailua-Kona, please take the time to tour the farm. It's well worth your time and money!

This seahorse farm is incredible! They are doing so much to help bring seahorses back. They are to be commended. The tour was very informative and fun. We saw so many different kinds of seahorses. I would definately go again.

They taught us so much about seahorses, and how endargered and special they are. They even give you the oppurtonity to hold them. We loved it so much we are... More

We took the plunge at my daughters urging and found the experience engaging and fascinating. It's a loosely organized tour around a series of tanks with engaging dialog around the seahorse lore. The culmination of the tour is the opportunity to hold a live seahorse. The bad: Pricey at $42/person and they require you call in a reservation. There were... More

We were so happy to see a seahorse farm like this one. They have hundreds of seahorses that you can see. There is even a tank where you can hold them. They also breed them and send them off to aquariums, hopefully to stop the illegal harvesting of seahorses from the ocean. They also do release many seahorses to the... More
