brilliant I never knew a conch was an animal well worth paying for. I liked the farm and the ocean view and your biography lesson

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

I really did not want to go there, but my wife insisted. We found the place fascinating as the purpose is to raise conch, grouper and cobia for commercial purposes. You learn quite a bit about conch maturity and the kids on our tour were interested in what our guide had to say. Check it out; you don't be disappointed.

This was fantastic! I read other reviews, stop being so cranky! Yes it cost $12 per adult but you are helping support the only conch farm in the world. The work they do & are experimenting with is astounding. You get about 20 mins of "lecture" with photos of how they grow a conch. Then about 15 mins of tour... More

It's informative...interesting because you can't see it anywhere else. If you have a free hour..do it! I don't think it was worth 12.00.

A short but very thorough your of the conch farm. They even had farm raised fish that you get to see. The tour guide was great and we enjoyed the trip albeit a little short.

We arrived ten minutes before they closed. Two workers were present, one working the gift shop and the other was a tour guide. The guide explained that the tour consisted of a twenty minute video and a twenty minute tour of the property. We were told to comeback the next day. Given what we saw, the price of admission ($12/person),... More

I put off my visit to the conch farm, just because it sounded so odd. I finally stopped in and so glad I did. A short tour, but very interesting. Their work to use such a Eco-friendly process was impressive. Three young children were in my tour group and really liked it, so bring your kids!

While interesting it was not worth the time, or the fee to tour this facility. I greatly respect what they do but it was really boring.

Driving up to the location, I wasn't sure what we would get from the tour. I was quite hesitant to pay our $12 per each adult fee but went along with it and I am so glad we did. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and I was very impressed with how resourceful and socially responsible the conch farm is. Lots... More
