recently went there while on a Disney Cruise. Disney did not offer the Sea Trek adventure via their port visits, do not know why....if was by far a terrific time. 3 generations, grandfather, father and grandsons went down. Boys were 9 and 12. They were a bit nervous to start but hopping excited at the end. Mother and Grandmother stayed... More

Tried to go here several times, but it was closed for repairs each time. Best time to go seemed to be when ships were not in port. However that's seemingly when they close for much needed repairs (from what we saw). So, if it's summer, call before you go. It was open one day we went there, but our focus... More

During the summer season Coral World closes a few days a week, when ships are not in port. You can call us or check our calendar on our website to see if we are open. This summer we are closed Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. More

Nice place to visit if you around. Small aquarium but clean and comfort. The best time to arive is the opening time. Don't miss the beach nearby.

If you are in St Thomas for just the day this would be a great place to go and see several things in one excursion. You can see sharks, sea turtles and many other marine wild life all in one place. You can also snuba or do encounters to get an even closer experience. Our children (16&18) did the sea... More

It was fun being able to try some things that we couldn't do at home like stand in the shark tank and swim with the sea lions. My biggest complaint was that in order to get a photo of the sea lions experience I had to buy their disk drive. I didn't have a problem with not taking my own... More

Very disappointed in the lack of activities and things to do. Unless you have an encounter or snuba excursion booked there is nothing to really do or look at. They seem to do a lot for conservation which is good, not it was not a fantastic experience

We briefly walked through the other areas of Coral World such as the Sea Lion show and the sting ray encounter. We were mainly there for the Sea Trek which was an awesome experience. The guys who ran the Sea Trek were very patient and made us all feel very comfortable.

Sea Trek let you put on a helmet and descend a ladder to the ocean floor. Explore the Caribbean waters and see some new things. More

Visited Coki Beach adjacent to Coral World primarily to snorkel. Both were very hard to find as we were driving a rental. Would recommend a taxi or shuttle as parking was very limited. Exhibits in Coral World were small and not all that impressive. would be good for children and those who have not seen much of the Carribean. Exhibits... More

We had a great time at Coral World. We swam with a sea lion and learned so much about them. My daughters did a snuba dive. We saw turtles, sting rays and sharks! So fun!!
