I was so nervous about the helmet dive at first. I am not a good swimmer but I felt very safe once we were under water. I felt a little pressure but it was okay. We were able to hold a couple of sea creatures. It was a great experience!

I'd agree with most of the reviews...if you've been to a Sea World or place that size, you may be disappointed...however, if you're looking for something fun to do while in St Thomas, this is actually a decent place...employees were nice/helpful..Sea Lion attraction was really fun, kids loved it...feeding the Sting Ray was fun as well...maybe try to go on...

The overall park was alright. It was fun to see all the animals and we were able to feed the stingrays for free but everything else cost at least $50... not worth it :/

Went on a tour to Coral World - not enough of time to see everything. There is so much to see and interact with. The Sea Lions were a nest bonus, the fish and coral were neat to see from the observation deck since we don't snorkle, this was the way to see them. Good trip for kids with Coki... More

We visited while on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. We have been to St. Thomas many times and when we saw this excursion offered we knew it would be something new and fun! After a drive from the port we arrived and got checked in and were told we would be able to walk around and explor before we had out... More

There's is nothing really to see there. It takes 15 min to go over the park. The entrance is $20. If you ever been to the SeaWorld or real aquarium this attraction would be a disappointment.

If you want to experience sea life put on a mask and a snorkel and go to just about any beach on the island, you'll end up swimming with a sea turtle. Set the Sea Lion free!! Not put on this earth for your entertainment. Respect nature

We went on a Thursday, when the cruise ships weren't in. The park wasn't overly crowded. We were able to do a ton of activities without feeling overwhelmed. We did the sea lion swim which was so fun! the split us up into groups so we got a lot of one on one time. And then we did a sea... More

We went to Coral World on our last cruise. One of our party is on oxygen and couldn't go snorkeling with us. It was great, not only the under water room on the reef but also a shark pool, turtle pool, snuba, scuba, snorkeling, semi sub, paragliding. Lots to do. Two snack bars and gift shops. Clean bathrooms and it's... More

My wife and I went here to explore the coral reef park as well as swim with the sea turtles. I will only recommend this place if you are going to swim with the sea lions or sea turtles. If you are going to see the aquarium or ocean, any mainland aquarium does a much better job of exhibiting the... More
