We had a marvelous time here. We did the Sea Lion swim. It was amazing. So much love between them and the trainer 's. We felt they had much mutual admiration. We really enjoyed our time and learned a lot. Our pictures r wonderful. We were to snuba, as well, but the conditions weren't good for it. They called us... More

We decided to try Coral Word based on the recommendation and the proximity to Coki Beach for snorkeling. Coral World is like many places in the Caribbean a little run down but the exhibits are informative and the live shows are entertaining. The use of lockers to store personal items while snorkeling at the nearby beach was convenient. However, bear... More

Spent a relaxing half day. It was within walking distance of our resort so we decided to investigate. Employees were friendly and since it wasn' very busy they had plenty of time to chat. Seeing the ocean floor from the observation module was a wonderful experience. We didn't do any of the extra fee activities but did observe people returning... More

My friend and I wanted someplace to go and connect with nature. We ended up choosing Coral World for a 45 min meet and great with one of their sea lions, Omar. It was educational and fun. After meeting Omar, we walked around the grounds seeing all their exhibits they had to offer. The place was a little run down... More

We were warned at the beginning of the excursion that our sea lion was tired. Despite starting late and ending early, the time with the sea lion was fun and memorable. My biggest disappointment was in the photos. The thumb drive of photos cost $75--more than the ticket for the excursion! We were not given the option to purchase individual... More

We had a wonderful day at Coral World and participated in the Sea Lion swim and the Sea Turtle swim. The animals were so friendly and gentle and we had a great time with them. The trainers were friendly, knowledgable, and very helpful.

Overrated unless you are going to purchase the extra-pay activities. Otherwise, there's not a whole lot to see and do. Areas were under construction and not available.

We enjoyed seeing the wildlife & the price is reasonable for its size. It needs major work on the exhibits! People are very friendly
