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.

There are hundreds and thousands of iguanas here. Iguanas in the trees, iguanas in the bushes, iguanas on buildings, iguanas on the ground... iguana-palooza! Which was cool for approximately 10 minutes. You can feed them giant leaves and watch the people throw bananas to the...More

This is a modest park -about 100 yards from end to end, clustered along either side of a walkway. The staff is friendly, and you'll receive a large leaf on a long stem that you can feed to the iguanas, which always results in a...More

You would think that iguanas would be all over this island but we only saw one in roaming freely. A large one was climbing the wall at West Bay. Other than the one that was stretched across the parking lot at the iguana farm. Darn...More

I loved the opportunity to see all the Iguana's. It was a real treat with friendly staff who teach you all there is to know about Iguana's. I did visited this location as part of the island tour offered by the hotel.

We enjoyed our stop at the Iguana farm. Lots of different kinds and a very knowledgeable staff. They let us feed the Iguana which was so cool. I love how they pose for you with their good side :)

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.
