We came here to swim with the sea lions while we were in St. Thomas on a cruise. Overall, we had a great experience. Scott, one of the sea lion trainers, was very personable, funny and cared a lot about the sea lions. This is not like the dolphin swims you do in every port where every person gets the... More

It's so small. We did it for 20 min. Never again. Don't waste your money. Everything so expensive , like scuba, or swim with turtle .

Coral World is staffed by a group of smart, enthusiastic young people whose passion for sea creatures is well apparent. We had a membership for a year and used it all the time! Did we get bored? Never! Did we learn something? Every single time! It's not a glamorous ocean park, but the sea life is very well cared for,... More

We took this shore excursion and it was my daughter's first helmet dive. It was fun. Unfortunately, it was only about 15-20 minutes in the water. We were in a tiny enclosed area and spent most of the time waiting for the rest of our group to do something before we could move on. We only got to handle two... More

We participated in the swim with sea lions. This was a moment of a lifetime! The time was well organized in the water learning about the sea lion, the research... More

The Sea Lion swim was excellent. We had Remo and he was very interactive with our group. I highly recommend visiting, would be great for a family. We arrived when they opened at 9:00 a.m. We did the swim at 11:15. There was plenty of time to see the park before the swim. The employees were very friendly.

Great place to enjoy 1/2 a day with friends and family! $19 to get in, they sell food and drinks. If you want to participate in their excursions including swimming with sweet sea turtles, hanging out with sea lions or doing a partial scuba dive that will cost you extra.
