This was a fun morning activity. Admission is $20 per adult, they do offer family package (2 adults 3-4 kids) for $65. This gets you into the park, you can pay for additional activities (snuba, shark encounter, turtle encounter, etc). We only paid for admission and had a great time feeding stingrays, watching and learning during the shark and coral... More

I had never heard of swimming with Sea Lions until I researched Coral World. I cannot express enough how amazing the experience was. It was so nice to get the one on one time with him and have the trainer show us some different tricks to do with him. Next time we're down in the USVI we are definitely going... More

Coral World was fantastic! Great for families and couples. Scott was very knowledgable along with the rest of the staff. You can tell they really care about the animals.

We bought a package to go to this park. Do not get me wrong I think it is a nice place but I think it is necessary to understand that in order to do the fun activities you need to pay more...the two nicest attractions (SNUBA and the submarine) are additional. the rest you spend the rest of the time...

Very nice little aquarium and preserve. Lots to see and do, my favorite part was the underwater observatory, 3 floors below sea level (almost missed this on the observation deck until I noticed an exit door - there must be an entrance, right!). Lots of great, natural aquariums, would go back again anytime! Great for families, very fun afternoon!

My husband and I swam with the sea lions and it was a amazing experience. They care so much for the animals and the fact you can learn more about these creatures but also be able to experience what the trainers so is a great feeling.

We loved our day at coral world. The property is well kept and not over crowded. They have a good amount of animal exhibits and the under water observation tower offers awesome views of the fish swimming freely in the ocean. My husband and I did the Sea Turtle experience and all I can say is WOW! The two staff... More
