Scenically pleasing Coral World offers the visitor the opportunity to see marine life just a little bit differently than the average municipal acquarium. I have enjoyed the outdoor tropical settings, and the opportunity for you to see the fish in the natural salt water of the sea. Maintenance and the surrounding area could be spruced up more, however, the day... More

This was a beautiful park. The animals are obviously treated with respect and kindness. My sister and I swam with the turtles, which was amazing! Some advice, don't wear a polka dotted swimsuit as the turtles think it's shiny. We do wish we had opted for the sea lion encounter though.

This was our second time to Coral World in 9 years. They have some wonderful displays and some under renovation which I was glad to see--it has gotten quite tired looking over the last 9 years--and I imagine the salt water and air erodes buildings quicker than in the interior. That being said--it is still worth the rew bucks to... More

Our visit was an anti climax. Had high expectations and was planning to spend a major part of the day here with my wife. Firstly do not get taken in by the name "Coral world"- there areno corals here. Secondly the entire property is very small - You can cover the entire trip in 30-45 minutes max. Guess I was... More

We booked a shore excursion here last month and selected the Sea Helmet Dive. Let me start with the drive there provided by the park as that was an adventure in itself. The woman who drove us there was NOT pleasant AT ALL. She was rude to the passengers in our vehicle and was yelling at people on the roads.... More

My wife and I went here with our 2 and 5 year old and everybody absolutely loved it there. While not the largest park, there is plenty to do and experience if you're willing to pay for the extras. We chose to do the sea lion encounter and got to spend 1/2 hour up close and personal with Omar, playing,... More

Went here with wife, daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandkids (4, 8 & 10) as part of a Disney Fantasy cruise ship excursion. Small compared to similar facilities we have on Oregon Coast, but a huge delight for the kids. Our guide was most knowledgable during our entire experience, including a ride in a semi-submerged boat within walking distance of the... More

Great wildlife preserve. We spent an entire afternoon there, and our 6 year old wanted to return the next day! The Sea Lions, Sea Turtles, Iquanas and tropical birds were fabulous. Well worth the admission price. And the setting is lovely.

Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so glad you had a wonderful time. Sometimes it can save you money if you will be on island for a while to get an annual membership to the park. It also save you 10% at the gift store. More

Unreal underwater experiences here for snorkelers. Clear your minds & just float with the beauty - then hopefully you'll take that memory home with you as I have. But then you must return!! Squishy sandy beach, clear aqua water to swim, will keep calling. ; )
