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.

If you have children, or just love nature, this is the place to see exotic Island species! Spend an hour, keep on going for a full day tour of Roatan!

I really enjoyed the visit to Arch's Park. If you enjoy getting up close and personal with wildlife, this is a good place to come. There are about 2000 iguanas in the park. We were told that they are being bred to repopulate the island....More

Not that many iguana to see - only in one concrete area. The only thing in the marine park was the Tarpon fish pool that was murky.

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

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.
