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.

Right after you pay your $10, you'll walk down a paved driveway and there you'll find dozens of iguanas. For $1 you can feed them a banana leaf and watch them clamber and climb all over each other, and maybe even your feet, as they...More

Lizard haven. Or heaven. Very quirky iguana ranch that could only exist as a result of one man's dedication to a rather odd cause. Nonetheless I would say it's a must see if you are in the area. Add feeding and petting iguanas to your...More

Certainly worth the trip if you want to see a lot of Iguanas in one location! The owner is trying to save these animals from the islanders who are killing them for food. Not much more to see here but got some great photos and...More

The Iguana's followed me around like puppies. I would stop and pet one and several more would come up for their chance. Great photo op.

This was a short stop on an island tour of Roatan. And 15 minutes is about what it is worth. If you've never seen iguanas up close, this is a good place. Lots of iguanas all over the place, different colors shapes and sizes. They...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.
