Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm
(808) 329-6840

Our tour is for families and children that want to see baby seahorses, pregnant males, feed and hold seahorses and learn about their natural history.

Ocean Rider is the first and only seahorse farm in the world dedicated to preserving the endangered seahorse with the worlds only living gene bank of live, breeding seahorses and seadragons housing over 30 species here on our 3 acre oceanfront farm at Keahole Point, Kona.

Ocean Rider was started in 1998 by a highly skilled couple that wanted to make a difference. Without any government assistance, venture capitalist, or angel investors (still self financed today) and against all odds, they began producing farm raised seahorses for the global pet trade in order to reduce the fishing pressure on the coral reefs around the world. Within 2 years Ocean Rider produced enough high quality farm raised seahorses to supply the entire global pet seahorse trade, shutting down the collection of wild seahorses forever.

On this tour, you will see babies, pregnant males, leafy and weedy sea dragons. You will also be able to enjoy the worlds only sustainable aquarium where more than half the worlds 36 species of seahorses are on display. There is also an interactive tide pool and fish feeding station for the children and a seahorse only gift shop where the proceeds go to the seahorses.
