Overview

Arch’s Iguana and Marine Reserve, we are dedicated to coral and marine life conservation. Through snorkel tours and lobster encounters we hope to show people another side to ocean life, one that needs to be respected and protected. My name is Samuel Arch. I am the son of Mr. Sherman Arch, founder of Arch’s Iguana and Marine Reserve. My father has imparted upon me a love for the ocean that can be replaced by no other. I am a third generation Arch. From childhood my father instilled in me the importance of conservation and protection. Throughout my life I have watched this reef go from baron and desolate to populated and thriving. At Arch’s Aquatic Adventure, we guarantee that your time on the island will be time well spent, and full of marvelous experiences which you can share with your family and friends.

I tied this portion of the excursion in with the Daniel Johnson's Sloth and Monkey Hangout. It is $10/pp more but well worth it. You can walk right up to the iguanas - and they to you. If you feed them, you can expect quite...More

A little touristy but definately worth the trip. In fact, you can even ask Samuel to take you out on his boat right from the park into a Marine Reserve that his dad founded. He is very knowledgeable and will take you snorkeling. Nice Iguana...More

I had never seen so many iguana all size, family and babies kept Inhouse until mature enough. The people are taking good care of them. You can also see different fish and well préserve scampies.

The cost to get into the "park" is $10USD per person and it is more of a private home with some animals (monkeys, fish and of course iguana's) and it might not look like much from the road, however, if you want to get up...More

Arch's Iguana Park was a great place to stop and have a quick visit on our way to the West End! Inexpensive and the money goes towards helping foster these reptiles ! They are very tame and enjoy interacting with visitors!

They are rescued but don't believe that they will be turned loose. This is a great facility - even rescues and care for injured and old Iguanas. Well worth the visit.

Yes, it's $10 to get in and then $1 to feed them. It's a rescue center so it is funded through these fees. We did enjoy interacting with them, but we did not feed them. They like being held! No feeding necessary.
