Tour was $12 per person. Lasted about 25 minutes. You learn everything you ever wanted to learn about conch! They had some hurricane damage in 2008 and are still recovering. They are starting fish farming.

Private tour! That review is hilarious as there is probably no one else that would go see the farm! It's a total scam! We wasted $24 and cab fare to/from our hotel! I want my $ back! The only person working there is Denver and I'm not sure how he keeps a straight face while giving the tour...I doubt if... More

Building was old and run down...needs a lot of remodeling. Guide was very informative and knowledgeable about conch. Bought a nice conch from the small shop there.

I first went here a decade ago, and little has changed. Everybody has to see this once. I skip the tour and relax with a beer (no bar but they do sell some drinks) while regarding five million conch sleepy growing in the sea based pens. For me, one of the most relaxing places there is.

This is for the most part an educational type adventure and is an experience that should be included in your schedule if you are the type of person that enjoys seeing how the Conch is farmed and just how much it is a historical staple of the island's history. I do recommend a vist.

It is the only conch farm in the world & it helps prevent depletion of the conch in the natural environment. The man who presented was very good. To be fair he did mention that they are doing renovations & expanding the facilities which are very dated. The driveway to the entrance is broken & even the entrance sign is... More

Okay, first let me say the Conch Farm was devastated by the hurricanes and yes it is $12 for a tour which may last for 30 minutes. However, it is very interesting and if paying $12 per person helps them get back on their feet and help provide jobs and boost the economy then to me it is worth it.... More
