from the pictures I had seen I wanted to visit. Staff was very friendly but I expected more to see. It was pretty small.

We are a family of 5 (3 kids - 14, 11, 9) who visited Coral World as part of a cruise ship excursion. Although our main purpose for the excursion was to swim with the Sea Lions, we were able to take in the park completely with our time allotment. Overall, our kids REALLY enjoyed the Sea Lion Swim.

daughters and niece loved the sea lion swim. Rest of park was interesting due to tanks of sharks, turtles, and beautiful fish. Iguanas have taken over the lunch area so don't be surprised if you eat very quickly....

We did the helmet dive with our 10 and 13 year old and it was great. The staff is very informative and makes you feel at ease. They are with you every step of the way. You are under for about 30 minutes and get to hold a sea cucumber and sea urchin. We all loved it. The rest of... More

My niece and I signed up for the Shark Encounter and had a thrilling time experiencing the sharks swimming around us, through our legs and occasionally brushing against us. The rest of the exhibits were worth the time to explore as there were many "hands on" activities as well as educational guides. A great time in the park and then... More

The shows they put on were the best part. The sea lions were funny, feeding the stingrays was great and we booked the Shark Encounter and had fun getting in the tank with the sharks.

This is a very nice attraction on St Thomas. We enjoyed seeing the employees feed the sharks, the stingrays and the turtles. Really cool getting to see the ocean reef out in the observatory as well as all the fish in the coral reef aquarium. Not too big... easy to do in either the morning or afternoon. Great views of...

During our 7-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise on-board cruise ship Carnival Conquest, we visited St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. This being our second visit to the Island of St. Thomas, we chose to visit the Coral World Ocean Park instead of going on a general sight-seeing tour. Specifically, we were interested in going on an under-water tour on-board a "Semi-Submersible" to... More

Did the helmut dive here. It was great with many different kinds of fish. There is a lot of corral around the dive area. It is safe and a lot of fun. The other exhibits are good. The park is small but not unlike most on the islands.
