If you are booking for our Meet the Expert Tours there are a few things we need to make you aware of.  Please make sure you wear sensible footwear (no heels), you will need to use the disinfectant footbaths upon entering and leaving the hatchery, you must be careful not to slip on the wet floors in the hatchery and children must be supervised at all times.  It’s important that you avoid touching the tanks or water.  As you can imagine, water quality is critical in successfully growing juvenile lobsters.  We look forward to meeting you.
