It was pouring with rain when we went but the staff were fantastic and provided us with towels to dry off. Fascinating to learn all about the life cycle of the conch. However, someone ought to tell the little critters that they are never going to get away with farting under water. Worth a visit but whatever you do, don't... More

A little pricey but educational. An interesting morning. We rode bicycles to the conch farm from the Royal West Indies. An easy trip since there are no hills.

This is a working conch and fish farm. I've never seen anything like this, and the kids also benefited from the experience. The farm is on a northern tip of the island and the views are fantastic. A perfect activity to take a break from the beach. Like everything on the island, a bit pricey but also like everything on... More

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.

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
