Kids will be amazed the habitat and life cycle of butterflies. The tour is very insightful as well a hands on. If you go they may even have the trained bird show happening.

When selecting my trip one of the key points of interest for me would be the butterfly garden as I was anxious to try out my new camera lense. The only issue we had is they needed to update their information on the website because we traveled all the way to Coral World to visit the garden only to find... More

The Butterfly Garden is a lovely respite from the more activie tourist activities and shopping stress on Saint Thomas. The staff is courteous and pleasant and the butterflies are well worth seeing and learning about. Although kids will enjoy the experience, it is a good one for people of any and every age. Use the coupon in the St. Thomas... More

A visit to The Butterfly Garden is also the highlight of our trips to St Thomas. The staff is highly knowledgeable and very friendly! We love that the Garden is right at the cruise port. So convenient! The garden was in full bloom on our May 19, 2014 visit. We saw an abundance of butterflies in so many vibrant colors!... More

We had a great time on this tour. We got to shop, see a good portion of the island and learn about butterflies.

The Butterfly Garden is located right at the cruise ship pier, and is a peaceful and quiet stop as you return from a shore excursion before reboarding your ship. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This isn't the largest butterfly garden by far, but is a pleasant oasis amidst the noise and hassle of reboarding your ship. Beware, however, that... More

This is located on the pier just behind Senor Frogs - no need to take any transportation - you just walk about 100 yards from the cruise ship. This is a small butterfly conservatory with (probably) less than 10 varieties but they are pretty and worth seeing. They have tours that will tell you about the butterflies and how they... More

As you are arriving to it, you feel like you're going in the wrong direction, but just follow the butterflies painted on the wall. The place is nice but a bit small. Seemed there were only three to four types of butterfiles. But the staff was really friendly and you get a couple to go to Coral World.

Sorry my wife and I both found this a bit boring, as there was a few groups moving through the garden, and they only had a few different species of butterflies, I would definitely recommend for people who have little ones with, as they would probably be quite fascinated.
