after all of the online hype we read about this being a "must do" in St. Thomas, this came up short. It was pricey and very small. We thought we would spend a 1/2 day in the park but had seen it all in 30 minutes. Went once, won't be going back.

This was definitely a highlight to our trip. There are literally 100's of iguanas all over the property. They are very friendly. We did the Snuba and the turtle experiences. Both were great and the guides were terrific and informative. Coral world is not very big so don't expect Sea World, but the experience was still thrilling. We went with... More

The Coral World park was okay from a general admission perspective. The only other activity here we paid for was the semi submarine. We also had lunch here. The food was just average fast food fare. Alcohol is also available. The exhibits for the sea life was okay. They also have an aviary for Lorikeets which I enjoyed most about... More

Lots of attractions at Coki Point and no parking. Tourist getting hit for 500 rent a car fines plus boot fees. If you are driving save yourself a huge headache and pay the 5 dollars in parking. Saw entirely to many people while returning my car for this to be a coincidence.

Great day trip while on the island, but the aquarium itself is a bit run down. Kids can feed the sting ray, see a sea lion up close and view several underwater tanks. None of this is particular great and the exhibits need to be updated. The special activities cost more money, but make it worthwhile. We did the snuba... More

This review is for Coral World, St. Thomas, Snuba Diving. Don't waste your $$$, this attraction was a tourist trap! We were not taken on a boat or anything, the snuba area is right off their shore at coral world in a very small area. First of all beautiful ocean greenery/fish/coral reef? There was none at Coral World, just several... More

Our Snuba leaves from the Observation Tower platform and covers all of Coki Bay. The Snuba guides customize each dive by the skill and comfort levels of the divers. What you see on the dive depends on many different variables such as the current, migration patterns and visibility. More

This place is like a smaller and more personal version of Seaworld. They have great exhibits and aquariums. You are upclose to a number of the animals. For example, during the Sea Lion talk, you are literally just a coouple of feet away from an incredible sea lion. Our kids [16, 13, and 7] were mesmerized. I would recommend going... More

We went on a day when there were no cruise ships so it was not crowded at all. They are doing some renovations so I don't think we got full impact. We were disappointed the submarine didn't operate the day we visited. But the best part was swimming with the sea lions. We had only 5 in our group so... More

We did the underwater helmet dive through our cruise excursion. The staff were all very friendly and well versed in what they are doing. It was a very cool way to get under the water and see coral and fish, etc. We wish it had been longer or taken a little more of a different route. You are down in... More
