We visited the conch farm as part of another tour, so, in that regard, I really enjoyed our visit. It was fairly quick, but information packed. It was cool to see conch in various stages of development. But, the admission fee is $12 -- and I'm not sure I would have been as happy paying that full fee.

I learned a lot about conch that I would never have if I didn't visit the conch farm. The staff was very knowledgeable and entertaining,

My family with 3 children visited the farm. It was a nice to see. The kids loved it. It makes you look at a Conch in a whole new light. They come out of the shell and there long eyes look right at you. We couldn't eat them after that. Too adorable. Highly recommend this as an outing

The $12 admission may be considered steep for a tour that was 20 minutes, but the learning experience is priceless. I learned that it's pronounced "konk." The tour guide did a informative intro on it's lifecycle and how they raise them on the conch farm. You get a hands on experience as you're able to pickup conchs at 4 months,... More

This was interesting but kind of a quick tour. It was cool to learn about the conch since it is such a part of the culture. Our kids enjoyed it.

A little pricey but worth it. I am not sure if there are any other conch farms around so this is a good education and takes you through their process which now included some fish breeding

This was strange, gross, historical and certainly interesting. It is a little out of the way, down on the leeward side of the island, but the little crew will walk you through the various stages of conch, how they farm them and show the conch shells at various stages of development. We loved it! Great souvenirs at the end but... More

Okay, $12 per person is probably kind of high, but we were impressed with the level of technology they are employing to grow conchs, along with the fish they are starting to also grow. It was interesting, educational, and I never realized the conchs actually have eyes! They have 2 older conchs, Jerry and Sally, that they pick up so... More

History of the Conch and how it is harvested in very interesting. It would have been nice to have samples of conch for those that have never tried it before.
