The Coral World Ocean Park is a reallu nice entertaining day trip. They have exhibits the you can see with the general admission as well as additional activities that cost extra but are well worth the money. Suggestion if you go with a family of 4 or more and if you decide to do additional activities, look into their membership,... More

We visited Coral World while on our cruise to the Caribbean. We specifically visited to do the underwater helmet dive. While not the largest place in the world, they pack a lot into the site. There's plenty for kids and adults to see here. The helmet dive was absolutely fantastic and I would love to do it again. definitely worth... More

On our recent trip to St Thomas we spent a morning at Coral World and really enjoyed it. It is not a very large park but the staff was extremely friendly and the exhibits were very interesting and well-maintained. We particularly loved seeing the sea turtles and hearing about their rehabilitation work. Also, the underwater coral reef observation was pretty... More

The shark and sea lion encounters are worth the trip, plus the ability to see the sea turtles, birds and the overall conservation efforts of sea wildlife are excellent. However, I rated this average based upon a few other areas that cannot be ignored. The place is pretty out dated. Kind of a run down Sea World. This place has... More

It was not a big place, honestly there are better aquariums back home, but if we had not done it we might have thought we missed something. The sea trek wasn't worth it.

We did the Shark Encounter, The Sea Lion Encounter, the Sea lion Swim and the Sea Turtle swim. The staff was absolutely amazing, and took their time with us! The gift shop personnel was... More

I live here and let my family from Germany use my car. Today is their last day on the island and I suggested Coki Beach. I love Coral World but today I recommended the beach because of the snorkeling. I didn't know about the car booting and they can't read English nor they can they barely speak it. They parked... More

I did this with my son, and he loved it so much his Auntie bought him a year family pass for his birthday. The Sea Lion swim is amazing! There is something so humbling and powerful about communing with these creatures. The staff is patient and will answer every question with enthusiasm as if they have never heard it before,... More
