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!

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.

I would highly recommend taking the tour and checking this place out. It's amazing the kind of stuff you can learn about the conch. We even picked up some cool stuff in their tiny gift shop. All of the money goes to a good cause as well. All of the staff are so nice and friendly.

First, this isn't an all-afternoon sort of thing, but if you have an hour to spend and are interested in these sorts of things, it was a nice and informative tour. Conchs are truly fascinating creatures, and it's interesting to see how they develop
