We took the tour round the conch farm and found it very interesting and educational. The tour lasted about 30-45 mins. We were able to hold and touch young conchs as well as the resident friendly conchs that came out of their shells so we could stroke and see them. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He was able to answer any question asked. Would definitely recommend a trip to the farm for everyone who visits the island.

The Caicos Conch Farm is a must to visit when vacationing at TCI. Our tour guide named Richard was very informative on these sea creatures. He takes you step by step through the stages of growth and how they take care of the conch. You will visit inside ocean pens to view the conch life stages. Make sure you wear sun screen since most of this is outdoors with very little shade. The total cost is 10.00 for entire family. Well worth it. They also have a small gift shop with fairly inexpensive items to purchase.

Tour guide is very informative. We got to hold 1 year old conch's that are in a nursery inside what looks like a plant greenhouse. The farm has dozens of ocean pens with varying sizes of conch, but you can't see them from the shore, just the tops of the pens. All of the land pens for the larger conchs are empty and dry. They don't serve conch anymore like we had read in some reviews.
Our visit was worth it...$12 per person.
