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.

You will see a lot of iguanas. If that's your schtick, you will love this place. If you don't like iguanas, this is definitely not the place for you. Feeding time is a frenzied mass of reptiles all clamoring to get a piece of lettuce....More

You are able to feed the iguanas and be up close with them. They are all over the place. There are other animals there as well.

At the must-see tourist trap of Arch’s Iguana Farm, we mingled with dozens of the reptiles and finally saw an elusive monkey lala, or “Christ lizard,” which walks upright – on water. Across the bay lies Fantasy Island, where the show was filmed.

The iguana and marine park is very interesting. You get to walk though dozens of colorful iguanas and feed them. They are vegetarians so no need to fear them!

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.
