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.

the pile of iguanas was kind of amazing and the young men that were there to guide us were very sweet. However, the place itself was kind of run down and small and I didnt like seeing the two monkeys they had in cages. I...More

Visited as part of an excursion from our cruise ship. There were a lot of iguana's which was cool. The rest of the park is a bit run down. You can get down to the water with beautiful views. Pretty average attraction.

This was a stop on our recent trip to Roatan, and I was skeptical at first. It turned out to be a great spot to see and interact with hundreds of large green iguanas, and some caged monkeys. Even had a few turkeys scattered around...More

We stopped here briefly.. and it rained..not their fault. Frankly, it is just a bunch of iguanas on a driveway. For your entrance fee you get to drop a banana on the groumd for them to eat. Meh.

They give you leaves which are the Iguana's favourite food, the animals will come right up and eat the leaves right from your hands. Very cool!

No need to plan to stay a long time just interesting to see and nice that it is there. I was a bit scared at first to walk by the iguanas but they move very slow and they get out of the way.

I loved the iguanas, and they were everywhere. I was afraid to step for fear of landing on a tail! I enjoyed watching people feed them, and getting to go down to the dock and look at the fish was great! I also really enjoyed...More

Never saw so many Iguanas in one place and they were very feisty! Had to be careful not to step on their tails, if you did they were docile, only looking for a little food. (they are vegetarians, thank goodness) Mr. Arch has done a...More

Nice stop along the way on an island tour - $10.00 admission which is reasonable. Lots of iguanas greet you when you arrive at the park. You are able to feed them and watch them interact - some climb trees as well. There is also...More

We went during a Carnival excursion called "Top 10 Best of Roatan." The iguanas are friendly, and I couldn't believe how many there were. Apparently, certain times of year (I think if it's cool and rainy), they hide. It was neat to see the monkeys...More

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.
