Be sure to go here to see some beautiful sea life. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Plan for an afternoon and do the tour through the whole facility. Would be fun to do private tour with the sea turtles.

We had a great afternoon at Coral World. Well kept, staff was lovely. Just wish we had gotten there earlier in the day. We did get to swim with the sharks and that was lots of fun. It is not a cheap place, but a great place to go.

I visited this park with my 2 children. There were interactive shows/displays every 30 minutes. We watched the sea lion show & the demonstrator was very informative & friendly. The sea lion was fun to watch. We looked at the fish, pet some sting rays & a shark. We also saw sea lions. It is not an all day thing,... More

We have now been to Coral world and Coli Beach in St. Thomas twice and had an awesome time both times. Our first time there we did the Sea Trek helmet walk which was really cool. This time we decided to do the SNUBA. There is no going back. In fact this experience and our guide Todd Gresham, (who himself,... More

On the last day of our trip, we only had a half day before we had to get to the airport. We weren't sure what we would do to pass the time, but we decided to check out Coral World last minute. We were pleasantly surprised with what we found. The place is small, but they have a schedule of... More

Don't expect a large park. Very nice exhibits but it can be seen in a couple of hours. There is a nice beach right next door.

I would honestly call this a more unregulated seaworld/discovery cove. It's perfectly safe and fun, just not as many rules. BUT it is much cheaper and you can swim with sharks, sea lions and turtles!

We visited on a Holland America cruise and booked an all-day excursion to Coral World largely because of the Sea Trek helmet dive, which was lots of fun for us myopic old folks because we could wear our glasses. But we were also surprised at how much there was to do in the rest of the facility. The enthusiastic young... More

My partner and I spent Monday morning doing the Sea Lion Swim at Coral World. It was truly an unforgettable experience! I was a little bit nervous going into it - they do weigh over 400 pounds you know! We had a group of 6 people total who were doing the swim (my partner and I and then 4 other... More

My family went and spent several hours at Coral World and had the most fabulous time and learned so much from the Presentations. The best part of the whole trip was getting to hang out with Sea Lions in a small group and taking pictures/swimming with them. Those are the type of experiences my children will keep for a lifetime.... More
