It was fun interacting with different species of butterflies and handle caterpillars, learning about the lifecycles and even handling a praying mantis. It was an inexpensive, but rewarding experience and I wouldn’t mind doing it again. Next to this farm, there is an outdoor farmer’s market and a fresh juice stand. Leoda’s is a great place to eat, all nearby and delicious!

Its was very good information. I learned about hawaii history as awell being a kingdown. Its good for litlle kids also. Very fun. Didnt know female gross hoppers have 5 eyes and one ears… weird. Love it

This was a great trip and supports a worthy cause. The crew was very friendly, food was good, and snorkeling excellent. I highly recommend PacWhale Foundation trips.

The butterfly farm was not what I was expecting. The experience was AMAZING and my whole family had fun.

This was a really lovely tour and full of interesting information!
