The tour was very interesting and we learned a lot about the Queen Conch that is in those conch fritters. While not a viable economic venture, and a little run down facility, there was a lot to learn and well worth the $12 entrance fee. We biked there from the seven stars resort. It was about 3 miles via the... More

Not sure it's worth the price for the tour but we did learn more than we ever would about Conch. Glad we went. Did buy a couple of conch shells from them. It was nice to hear how they began the operation (education in mind; providing conch to island restaurants, etc.).

We had a most informative guide who thoroughly explained the growth and development of the conch and how they are farmed. It was wonderful to hear that their operation is very ecologically friendly. We greatly enjoyed the presentation and tour of the facility. Sadly, the conch raised here is only served at Amanyara. The rest is exported to restaurants in... More

Learned everything I now know about conch, in about 1 hour! $12 tour fee, and you get the 15 min biology lesson, tour of the conch tanks and fish tanks, and you get to meet Jerry and Sally, large conchs that are mating!

After eating conch prepared many different ways all over the islands, this was a very interesting place to visit. Being from the Midwest, I'm use to seeing big cattle and corn farming operations. Seeing their operation and their concern for keeping the ocean in balance while producing an excellent protein source is a welcome experience. Seeing the different stages of... More

I collect sea shells, so I wanted to see this. It was worth the $12 admission, but is nothing fancy by any means. The tour is maybe 25 minutes - an introduction indoors followed by a walk-by of the various tanks. You don't go offshore to see the growing pens or anything.

Oddly it rained the day we planned to go to the conch farm which was OK, since the tour is mostly indoors. Very interesting and informative to learn about the critters.

We had a car for 2 days of our 10 day vacation and found that sufficient to explore the whole island given that our hotel was on Grace Bay and walking distance to most restaurants. One stop for the family was the Conch Farm. It was very interesting and provided a lot of material for the kids to include in... More
