Great aquarium experience especially for young children and price of admission comes with complimentary beach pass. Travelled here with my two boys 15 months and 4 years and they loved it. The grounds are extremely well maintained and the have some cool iguanas lounging about every where. The various exhibits are enclosed and air conditioned which is a blessed relief... More

There is not much to do at the park except the Underwater activities..which are a must, don't leave here until you do these. We did the Sea Trek, booking in advance is required, it's like deep sea diving with the diving bell helment attached to a airhose. You walk along the sea floor along a trial to see the fish,...

Swimming with the sea lions was a blast. the open ocean viewing tank is fun and so is the touch tank and bird santuary.

Did underwater helmet dive here. Its a fun concept where they put a helmet on your head which traps air so that you can go down upto 25 feet on the ocean floor and see marine life. Very comfortable and lots of fun. Shutting off yourself from the sounds of outside world under the ocean and listening to the silence... More

This is a very small aquarium, under $20 per person. We went on a Wednesday and they were very few people there so you can look at the exhibits in peace. If you like large crowds like seaworld, you will be disappointed here.

The underwater viewing spot was under construction however it was nice to see the parrots, iguanas, and such on land. It would have been a waste of time except for the excellent sea lion interaction - worth the money for animal lovers to experience this activity.

We are glad you enjoyed the colorful Lorikeets and the fun iguanas. Remember to pick up any trash around you so the iguanas don't try to eat it. The sea lions are amazing, rescued from a culling in South America they have been a great opportunity to demonstrate animal husbandry skills and the direct relationship with their veterinary care.

20-30 min ride from harbor ($10 each shared taxi). Park is small, sea trekking is fun but a little expensive. Nice beach and snorkelling.

It is a beautiful 20 to 30 min ride across the island with ocean views on either side. We are located on a small peninsula on the north eastern side of St Thomas. Sea Trek is an amazing opportunity for anyone to walk across the ocean floor and see the marine life that lives there. More

Coral World is a great place to visit. it is small, not crowded and fun!. We saw turtle, sharks, beautiful fish, and spent some time hanging out with Franco, a 500 pound sea lion!

We were here for a wedding and after the park hours. However, the exhibits were open and really nice. Everything seemed a bit old and outdated, but I believe I heard somebody say it is over 20 years old, so that doesn't surprise me. I'm not sure what it cost to get in, so that might have had a larger... More
