My husband and I really, really enjoyed this adventure!! Our guides (Sean, Billy and Trent) made this a very enjoyable time. They were very patient with us and answered all our questions. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

The instructions I received helped give me confidence in the deeper water and for snorkelling in general. I saw lots of beautiful fish.

I think we expected a lot more at Coral World. The bird expedition was closed, maintenance going. I thought there would be more things available to pet and feed.

Coral world was a great experience. Iguanas will follow you around trying to eat your food, though. The food was in my opinion, overpriced. Marine Gardens should have some AC too.

The park itself is very small. We walked they it all in probably 30 minutes. Nice place for kids, but it you really wanna get something out of it definitely pay for an excursion. We did snuba diving and that was a lot of fun!

We had four kids of varying ages from 3 to 8 yrs. All were fully engaged, and didn't want to leave. The added perk was that the beach was right next door with some great snorkeling. The glass bottom sub was just ok. For the...More

The park is small, but it is amazing! We did the SNUBA which was really fun, you go down to coki beach and go down about 20 feet and see all the beautiful coral. Great time!

We booked this excursion separately from our cruise and after a short taxi ride from the pier, arrived at Coral World. There are a few exhibits to enjoy but the paid encounters were well worth the money. Both of our teens did the shark encounter...More

We didn't do the extras that required more money like the Sea Trek Dive, but others already answered that part of the question. We ate there, and the food was good enough -- mostly of the fast food variety and pretty... More
