Our tour guide (I want to say Jenesi but i'm not sure of the spelling) was very knowledgeable, kind and patient. A sense of pride and affection was noted when she educated us about the lifecycle and the care of these animals. We appreciate the efforts they adopt as a sustainable nonwasteful farm. Short visit, but very informative. A must... More

If you want to know about the life of a conch, then this is a must attraction. You will see first hand how they are raised from start to finish. They are also starting a commercial fish farm that is not operational yet, but is also very interesting. I think these farms will be the way of the future and... More

Tour was interesting as we did learn a few things about Conch we didn't know before. We were able to touch one and see the animal come out of it's shell. Otherwise, expensive for what they show you.

The Caicos Conch Farm is a very interesting experience for all ages. i've been to Turks & Caicos several times, though this is my first time hitting up the Conch Farm. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. We really loved hearing about the research and how much they have learned/studied the conch lifecycle. You get... More

This a sweet little pink place. It's not big but they are doing big things here. The tour takes all of 30 minutes with a quick informative classroom show and then a tour of the farm where they breed and raise conch and several varieties of fish. This is the only conch farm in the world and not government funded.... More

It was pouring with rain when we went but the staff were fantastic and provided us with towels to dry off. Fascinating to learn all about the life cycle of the conch. However, someone ought to tell the little critters that they are never going to get away with farting under water. Worth a visit but whatever you do, don't... More

A little pricey but educational. An interesting morning. We rode bicycles to the conch farm from the Royal West Indies. An easy trip since there are no hills.

This is a working conch and fish farm. I've never seen anything like this, and the kids also benefited from the experience. The farm is on a northern tip of the island and the views are fantastic. A perfect activity to take a break from the beach. Like everything on the island, a bit pricey but also like everything on... More

We were led into a little room that had professional photos of the entire conch raising process. Then we were take out around the farm to see the different stages of development. Our tour guide was very informative and willing to talk to us about the conch farm. We got to hold different conchs, from the little babies to the... More
