Dear Valued Guests,
We are excited to announce that we are in the process of moving to a new and larger location.
To accommodate this move, we will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are confident that the new location will be worth the wait.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Sincerely, The Kanaloa Team

"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."

WOW WOW WOW!
“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.”
