The staff certainly know their stuff about this fascinating creatures. We were amazed with the variety of seahorses and sea dragons, and were fascinated in seeing these beautiful, unique fish in their various stages of growth. I would highly recommend this very educational tourist attraction.

An informative visit.Sea horses were an unknown creature to me so it was good to see their life stages demonstrated. The size of the export market was a surprise.
