Owner description: The conch, a shelled sea creature that lives on the ocean floor, is now commercially raised and sold to tourists: who would've guessed?

What an amazing education experience. Would definitely recommend visiting this unique one of a kind experience to see the conch up close and personal!

This is a very small place, but I thought the information was fascinating on how they farm the eggs up to the adult queen conch and especially their current plans for deep sea fish hatcheries.

Had a great time learning about and seeing the Caicos Conch Farm! It is a little hard to find and there is a fee for the tour, but we found it to be a great addition to our adventure.

The tour was fun and informative, but there's really not that much to see. If you're a conch enthusiast, I guess its a good way to spend part of your afternoon. Our tour lasted just about 30 minutes, so if you're staying on the West side of the island, I really don't know that its worth the effort. The conch farm is part of many of the prepackaged tours, and there's a huge markup for it. If you do go, do it on your own time and cost. Parking space is limited, and if you're unlucky enough to arrive after one of the prepackaged tours, be prepared to wait, assuming you can find a space! The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, but really...how much can be said about a farm dedicated to raising conch? If you've got limited time on the island, skip it. Otherwise, putting it on an afternoon trip to the Leeward side is an interesting addition to your Provo itinerary.

This is the world's only conch farm. It is a fish farm, and a research center, too. We drove there in our rental car; it is about a half a mile from the Ferry terminal that goes to North Caicos. The presentation at the farm was about 15 -20 minutes , and then we toured the grounds. Informative, and we saw the difference between a male and female conch, along with conch in the different stages of their life cycle. Small gift shop there, with conch shells.
