Worth a trip if you need a few hours of the sun.

Being the old conch farm in the world it is worth a visit to see how/why/where conch's come from and how they can be 'farmed'- plus there are loads of beautiful shells you can... read 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.

My wife and I visited the Caicos Conch Farm today. We took their tour, which consisted of a Biology lesson first, and then a tour of their facility. Seeing conch all over the island, this was an excellent experience to learn about conch and how they reproduce at the farm and grow to maturity. There's even a time during the... More

It was a very nice visit to this rustic small farm. Learn about the conch with specimens throughout their whole life cycle. Staff are friendly and, knowledgeable. We ended up with a private tour that was low key, interactive, and very educational. Takes 20-30 minutes but worth it to take the time to see this operation. I order conch at... More

We have enjoyed conch around the world but never fully understood the meat harvesting process. This tour was very low key, interesting, and interactive. Now remember this is not a national museum but a small scale conch raising farm where the conch is raised, treated like a baby, and then shipped to white tablecloth restaurants in Miami due to it's...

If you are interested in learning about the conchs then this is the place to come. We took the Paradise Scooters tour which stops here. Very informative!

Tour was short and concise. Nothing special just pretty basic. The tour took all of about 20 minutes for US$12 per person.
