A MUST SEE & DO WHILE ON THE BIG ISLAND
"We visited Kanaloa Octopus Farm while on a family vacation. I had no expectations so I was greatly surprised by the interaction and information provided. Great for our 6 year old daughter for for both of her parents. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. A+A+A+A+A+A+A+"

"I've read so much about octopus but this was fascinating. A research facility focused on sustainable farming. I learned when more than I expected. Interacting with the cuties was amazing. They actually play with toys! An experience like none other."

“Do you love cephalopods? Then you better stop by and meet some while on the Big Island. This tour was definitely the highlight of the trip. Great gifts too at reasonable prices and I love that the money goes toward care and research.”
