We were cruise ship passengers and visited the Park with our 4 and 7 year old grandchildren who were too young to participate in most other shore excursions. We found the staff of the park to be friendly, polite, engaging, and informed. The Park was age appropriate for our grand children and interesting to us old farts. The kids thoroughly... More

We purchased the video and saw so much sea life. Then walked around the park and learned about that sealife. We... More

We went on a cloudy Saturday, and there was no body there! We had many of the talks and demonstrations to ourselves. You can see the whole park in about 2 hours.

While the park was small, the experiences offered are big. My daughter and I did the sea turtle experience, very cool! We got to get in a pool with big sea turtles and touch them, learn about them. The guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We loved it! Also appreciate what Coral World does with injured sea turtles, by getting... More

Excellently-run program, very professional! I felt very safe and attended to--at 73, this was my first encounter with underwater diving! My 18-year-old Granddaughter was delighted with her experience, as well! Our Guides were knowledgeable, and worked hard to make everyone who dived feel involved in the underwater adventure!

We did the Snuba here and it was great. Perfect if your looking to try the scuba experience, but don't want the cost.

Was very enjoyable and different place to visit....loved the sea turtle information and the lady was very knowledgeable and made it great for all ages....only wish the sea lions were able to be seen and not just see them at the show wish there was more hands on and more people at the different exhibits explaining the animals

A small place but lots to see and spectacular views. Best thing is the free entry to coki beach (see other review) Can't really spend the whole day here unless you book activities as there isn't that much to do. Range of activities are good and the staff were very informative and knowledgeable.
