This was our second trip to the Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm (the last being in 2009). Such a great opportunity to learn about these fascinating creatures! And when else would you ever have the chance to have a seahorse wrap it's tail around your finger?...More

Truly a special tour. All phases of the seahorse life are shown, from the food source to babies to adults. The best part was actually getting to have a seahorse latch onto my finger. There were specimens of other species on display. The sea dragons...More

I agree, call them. They clearly said "no" based on past experience but it can't hurt to ask.
