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.

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

Fun, hands on experience with the Iguanas. Our guide was helpful and pleasant and seemed genuinely interested in saving the species.

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

Great experience. A lot of free roaming iguanas. The reason for the 4 stars only is that there are a few areas of caged parrots and confined fish. I felt like all these parks that have caged animals just tell you that these are rescue...More

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 arrived and were surprised at the sheer number of iguanas, all apparently very docile. We also saw parrots,tarpons, and sergeant major fish.

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

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.
