Guests will get a glimpse of baby seahorses, learn about Birch Aquarium’s renowned breeding program, and learn what it takes to care for these unique fish, including the option of feeding them.

The cost includes up to six people and is $ 250 for the general public / $ 225 for members. Admission to the aquarium is separate and is $ 24.95 for adults, $ 19.95 for children ages 3 to 17, and free for aquarium members.
