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

If you ever wanted to know about conch this is well worth it. Its the only one in the world and very informative. The tour is about 40 minutes and we were glad we did it.

You'll learn a lot about the conch industry. But probably won't want to eat any after you leave. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and also shared the farm's fish raising research project. My son really enjoyed the tour and the price was good ($12 per person).

Conch is served at restaurants all over Provo, so I was very curious about this local delicacy. The farm is pretty close to the grace bay resorts, but not really walking distance. The tour was awesome - my wife and I leaned so much about conch and how they are raised and harvested for local use and export. We thought... More

Who would have thought we could slip in a little education during our visit to paradise? The folks at Caicos Conch Farm are true ecological pioneers. The tour begins with an understandable, easy to follow (for us non-scientists) explanation of how the conchs are farmed and harvested. The short walking tour of the tanks which follows puts everything in perspective... More

Being a marine scientist and a scuba diver, I'm biased, but the conch farm was well worth the visit. The four of us enjoyed the tour and learning about the great aquaculture endeavor occurring at the farm.

We were hesitant to go but were glad we went for the 40 min tour. Was educational by real neat to hear the future of conch and fishing.

I went this morning to the Conch Farm and it is REALLY a must-see on the island! The visit (about 20-30mn) began with a detailed explanation of the technology and methods used for the cultivation of the Caribbean Queen Conch. I learned a lot! Then, you will visit the "farm" and see conchs at different ages of their evolution (5-month,... More

This is NOT a tourist trap! The Conch Farm was our favorite stop on our self-guided scooter tour of the island. Such a pleasant surprise. The tour guides give you a brief and highly informative presentation of the life of a conch, then a very hands-on tour of the farm where you can even touch and pick up a live... More
