Nice little place.

Small place, but well-done. Aquarium is special experience.Could have a few more attractions for admission price. Very laid back.

Myself, my daughter and 3 year old grandson visited on a shore excursion the end of August 2014. The whole park took only about 30 minutes to go through and needs some improvements. There are lizards (?) walking free around the park and aren't intimidated by people at all and my grandson loved that. We also did a short semi-submersible... More

A group of us visited Coral World and opted to try Snuba. It was a great experience. Our guide was very helpful, and very aware of everyone in our group, even though there were five of us, and all at different comfort levels. He made sure to take time with each of us and check to be sure we were... More

The aquarium is very small and well done but the trip is likely worth the while only if you are participating in some of the extra activities like swimming with the sea lions or sharks, etc. Although the location is unique and on a beautiful beach and the undersea aquarium portion is unique, there is not much more to see...

We visited Coral World and really enjoyed our Snuba exerience. Our snuba guide Glenn was fabulous and gave great instruction and made sure we were all comfortable with snuba. Highly recommend snuba for those interested in scuba diving and highly recommend Glenn. Coral World is a nice place to spend several hours while on St Thomas.

We visited Coral World on a shore excursion. The drive from the docks to Coral World took a long time so we had about 2 hours for the visit. My 11 years old son really enjoyed all the animals and the fish he got to see. He enjoyed the Sea Lion encounter, the lorikeet feeding, the touch tank. We got... More

We had a fabulous time swimming with a sea lion! The staff explained everything well so we were prepared and able to play and touch him safely! We could've stayed there all day! The photographer took hundreds of pictures, and amazingly they were able to pull out our pics quickly. Yes, I splurged and bought the memory stick of the... More

Coral World is a small marine park, located on the eastward side of St. Thomas USVI. The sea lion swim was our cruise line excursion of choice for our short time on the island. The park itself is actually fairly small, and if we weren't going to be doing the encounter with the sea lions, I'm not sure if I... More

My girlfriend and I booked this trip while we were on a Celebrity Cruise of the Caribbean as it was an experience on my bucket list (to swim with sharks) and we were booked by a kind and friendly phone agent who sent an e-mail confirmation as promised for the time of our experience. When we arrived, after a 25-30... More
