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.

The iguana park in Roatan is worth a visit, if for no other reason to help preserve the species on Roatan. They are doing good work to save them and care for iguanas brought to their place. The tour is nothing special, but on a...More

We went with a large group excursion and saw so many iguanas! The staff seem to tenderly care for their animals as one was petting and grooming one of the iguanas who slept. They offered us babies to hold, we didn't have to ask. There's...More

These primordial dragon monsters are everywhere, and friendly! The owners of the park have turned a hobby into a small business. You will be surrounded with iguana's who want some leafy food, or to have their heads stroked. Creepy crawly fun. And they have a...More

So many iguanas. A short activity, maybe 20 minutes is all you really need. You feed the iguanas big leaves and they swarm you. My 3 year old daughter was scared of them, but the rest of us loved it. It was $10 per person,...More

Stopped here on a tour from Daniel Johnson's Monkey and Sloth Hang Out. Well worth the $10. Staff gave my kids plenty of leaves to feed the iguanas that were EVERYWHERE. The iguanas were well behaved and not aggressive at all. The kids loved it....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.
