It is our 6th time to the island and our first time at the conch farm. We love eating conch, so we found the tour to be informative and interesting. Denver is a great tour guide. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to friends visiting the island. I can't wait for them to have a restaurant on-site.

Very informative about conchs and the conch farm. They say that you don't eat farmed conch in the Turks and Caicos because they use the conch from the ocean. It is a quick and interesting visit.

We stopped at the Conch Farm while taking a vespa tour (with Paradise Scooters) and we stopped at the farm. It was really cool! They showed us how they, very simply, are able to raise conch and fish there on the farm in a natural and safe environment. They are planning on opening a restaurant wherein they will serve dishes...

This is a neat place that preserves the queen conch and ensures that the species stays around. This island is known for its several conch dishes and its interesting to see how they come to be.

Local cuisine is Conch, so why not see how it is farmed? It's an expensive (US$12/person), short tour but informative and the money goes towards a good cause. It's interesting to see the conch at various stages of life. Learn and enjoy. There are several ways to enjoy conch, Fritters (not much conch taste but yummy), soup (spicy but good),... More

Very educational and interesting. Nice way to spend a little time away from the beach and sun! You see first hand from the wee conch of a few months old to the 14 yr old current resident mascots, AKA Jerry and Sally! You can view how to tell the sex of the conch also, I thought they were asexual. They... More

Since there is obviously Conch on the menu everywhere, this is a good stop to learn about them. Staff is very friendly and will answer any questions. This is good option if weather outlook not so great for a beach day. Will probably not spend more than 1 hour there though. There is tour of facilities and education on how... More

The gift shop is VERY limited and there was really nothing to see. As a matter of fact when we arrived we were going to take the tour but no one greeted us and when we saw another tour group we were glad we didn't pay the money.
