  • Sometimes dolfins, (Manta/Sting)-rays, octopuses, frog fishes and sea horses are spotted

Can I feed the fish?

Sorry, but no feeding is allowed in the marine park. The reason is that you won’t be there everyday to feed and the fish can’t take care of them selves if they are fed too often. Aslo the fish have a task in the eco-sysem. By feeding you’ll disrupt the eco-system. So the most simple thing to do is; do not feed.
