Sea Lion Swim

Kids loved the Sea Lion Swim, Staff kept everyone involved. Park is small but is full of a lot of activities for all ages.

We did the Sea Lion Encounter but unfortunately Omar was a bit under the weather. He had a ear and skin infection, sore toe nail and he has cataracts. He was a good sport but a little disappointed that they gave us a sick sea lion. Especially since it wasn't a cheap experience. However, the facilities was absolutely beautiful. When... More

We visited on our second day on the island. A bit confusing to get to due to some construction, but not too bad. The park is small, but filled with quite a few exhibits. The girls (12 and 16) had fun with the two sea turtles and later we all swam with Franco the big sea lion. Got to take... More

We are glad you got a chance to meet Franco. Remember it is best not to feed the iguanas. Feeding them teaches them, food comes from guests. We feed them every day at 3:30 on the ramp by the Lorikeets, away from where guests eat their lunches. More

I loved the under water observation it was great They have lots of iguanas running around and they have huge sea turtles and small sharks you can snorkel and you can pet a sea lion if you want I get sad when animals are in captivity but they stated they were rescues

Marketing D, Manager at Coral World Ocean Park, responded to this review

That is correct. The 4 sea turtle we have are rescues and were deemed non-releasable. Meaning they each have medical conditions that if released, they would not be able to survive on their own. The 4 sea lions were rescues as well. They were saved from a culling in South America. They were originally in a program to become rescue... More

Coral World is a great way to spend the day, following the presentation schedule and visiting Coki Beach. For more excitement you can try one of our activities. Which you can book on TripAdvisor. More

Visited Coral World yesterday hoping to snag a slot to swim with the sea turtles, but my youngest was an inch too short so we settled for the sea lion encounter... $350 later (family of 5), PLUS A TIP, we got 20 minutes with Omar and I wasn't allowed to take any photos. They had a photographer taking them. We... More

The Sea Lion Encounter is $67 per person. A family of 5 can take advantage of our family day pass for $60. It lets in 2 adults and 4 children up to 21 years of age. During the Encounter the trainer makes sure that each person gets a Sea Lion Kiss or has the chance to request a special pose.... More

The sea turtles looked cramped, many of the exhibits were closed, and it cost almost $40 for two people. We saw more snorkeling on our resort. I was disappointed. If you wanted to spend even more you could touch the animals, but it wasn't what i expected.

We thought we'd try this place out for $19.00 bucks we weren't risking anything. It was small but nice. I enjoyed viewing the turtles and the Sea lion show. Oh also playing with the sting rays.

The semi sub takes you out into Water Bay and it is open ocean. So you never know what you will see. More
