Nice aquarium,beautiful exotic birds (that was our highlight). You can book and excursion to swim with the sea lions which looked like fun. It is right next to Coki Beach which is nice but busy.

Coral World is a small family owned marine park on the island of St Thomas. One of the many things that Coral World does is take in any stranded or injured animals. Our vet tech and staff work to rehab the animals and release them once they are strong enough to go back to the wild. More

The observation tower sits off shore and goes all the way to the ocean floor. There are portholes around the entire lower level so guests can look out in any directions and see the fish and marine life in the ocean. More

We went there during a festival and had pre-paid for our tickets and here it was free on this day. Not very impressed. I went there years ago and a lot has changed. Kind of a let down.
