We were in St Thomas for the day as part of a cruise and decided to start out by visiting Coral World. The cab ride was about 15 minutes and $9 per person. The cab driver gave us a discount card to receive $3 off admission. We did general admission and for 2 adults and 1 toddler (free) paid $32. We walked through the gate, were handed a map of the park and told the sea lion show was just beginning. We headed to the area and caught Remo in the middle of his performance. We sat on the ground, about a foot away from the large sea lion, the only thing separating us was a rope. My 1 year old did not know what to think, but was a little scared at his loud growl. After the show, we walked around to see all the small tanks inside the dark aquarium. When we left, we looked at the map and realized we were at the edge of the park. Outside was a stingray lagoon (only saw 2 stingrays) and a short pathway (not stroller friendly as it is small rock gravel) that brought you to a small bridge overlooking the tortoises and ducks. There was a small gift shop and then a large picnic area that was empty. There were lorikeets inside a netted area you could purchase nectar to feed, a small shark tank with people swimming with small sharks, an area to overlook the sea turtle lagoon (with one turtle) for the sea turtle encounter. (You could also see this from the walkway down to the dome that housed the equipment for the snuba divers. Nothing to see there.) On the other side, there were a couple more in a lagoon right at the edge of the ocean. Housed in the middle of this was a food stand (prices were average, not overpriced - $2 water and $2 cold beer). At the front of the park, was another aquarium that had stairs and a wheelchair lift (that you needed assistance to use); it was rounded and had a plethora of fish but was maybe 500 sq feet. Outside were bathrooms with showers (didn't go in) and another gift shop. That was all.
The park is a bit rundown and could use some remodeling to do away with some of the deterioration. If my son wasn't so little (he's 1), we would have been disappointed but it was a fine size for us as we were able to see everything (minus going inside to feed the lorikeets) in about an hour.
