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.

Cool little place to come see a bunch of land iguanas. Not much else here to see and it's a bit out of the way, but if you have a car and are exploring the island then it is worth a stop.

We quite liked this place. I suggest going on a non cruise ship day, or get there early. We first went on a cloudy day and they said that there wouldn't be as many iguanas out, but we in fact saw lots and had the...More

Not much enthusiasm shown by the workers though they did tell us about the different types of iguanas and showed us a few fish in the enclosure

Mr Arch has been an advocate for protecting the island of Roatan and its iguanas which were in danger of becoming extinct. It was so neat to watch them and then we got to feed them! Great experience for all

$10 for the entrance into the park. You get to see all the hundreds/thousands of Iguanas and get to feed them with giant leaves. They will allow you to hold the large older iguanas but they are wild so they sometimes do not want to...More

Awesome experience. Very impressed that this park was the result of one family who started feeding wild iguanas in their yard. One iguana led to more coming & breeding until the park has grown into a refuge & home for at least a thousand, if...More

This is a family-run "attraction" that is a safe place for iguanas. Native peoples eat iguana (like we eat rabbit or deer) so this area is a safe place for them. There are no fences, iguanas stay here because they get fed in a safe...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.
