“Very informative and surprising”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

I was surprised to learn about the Conch Farm, what was more surprising was the "trained conch" yes, they actually come out when their shells are lifted so you can see these amazing creatures and touch them. Great experience.

“Nothing to see, not worth a single penny”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Do NOT pay a single dollar to see this place. What you can scoop up from their Internet page far exceeds all and anything you can actually see there. The visit last just a couple of minutes, and it is a practical fraud to charge people anything to enter and see. In the past, before the hurracanes, the place might have amounted to something, but now it is just one plain NOTHING. Spare yourself some nice dollars and do NOT go there to waste the time and money. Take my word for it.

Interesting to learn about the Conch but the tour is only about 15 minutes long. $12.00 per person.

“Learn more than you thought”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

While it is a bit spendy ($12) for a 15 min tour, you will learn a lot (telling male from female), and be impressed by the scope of the industry. We are glad we went. Don't expect samples!

“Beautiful Conch”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

The Conch is an endangered species and here at the farm they are allowed to expand their numbers. It was very interesting to learn about this beautiful creature.
