  • The only farm raised conch in the world. Learned a lot more about these cute and tasty creatures than I thought possible. Incredibly informative as well. They're currently expanding into farming other fish. A rather unique experience for those interested in how this local cuisine get exported all over the world.
  • Very cool place to visit and learn about conch (konk) farming. Nice gift shop, too.
  • Nice place to visit. The guide was very good, showing real knowledge about the farm and conchs. A pity that the place is so run down.
  • We stopped here as part of our Concha Woncha tour. It was a great learning experience to see the Conch as they progress and grow. We also got to see some of the fish they farm as well. Our tour last about an hour.
  • Tremendous idea and a fun visit. It's not a long visit , maybe 30 minutes, but to pet the conches that are there and learn about their life cycle was neat. Good vacation photos too. I'm happy to say I visited a conch farm.
