We love all marine parks and this is no exception. It is pretty small and a bit overpriced but no complaints since it seems pretty clear the money is well spent. The marine... read more

We took a taxi from the cruise ship (cost was 20$ but gave a 3$ off coupon for the admission. Taxis are easy to get and there is a board giving the fees for the different areas you want to go to. I got to feed the sting rays with my hands which was the highlight of my whole cruise!... More

We love all marine parks and this is no exception. It is pretty small and a bit overpriced but no complaints since it seems pretty clear the money is well spent. The marine life, birds, reptiles and other creatures they have on site appear to be in good health, happy and well cared for. The workers, although not many are... More

This aquarium is great, needs some TLC but you get the point. It is hidden down a street and there really are no signs where it is. For $20 go in an enjoy. Takes an hr. Coolest part is the observatory that is out in the ocean and it has a basement view of the ocean flooor they also do... More

I highly suggest the individual Sea Lion Adventure. Great time, the trainer Christine was awesome and very knowledgeable. Plan on spending 4-5 hours at the park.

We were told that this was a mini sea world but had no idea how intimate it would get Should have spent more time but what we did in a couple of hours was memorable The live sea lion show had maybe 30 people in the audience Front row could smell the fishy breath of this huge animal. Then we... More

We visited Coral World as an excursion through Norwegian Cruise Lines. While there were several parts that were enjoyable and that our kids 8-12 years old loved, it left a lot to be desired. The entire park is very rundown and most of the feeding or touch exhibits shut down by 3:30 or 4 pm. The best part was the... More

We got there at 11 and didn't leave until just before 4. Don't worry about the iguanas. They're vegetarian and just look hopefully at your food. Very good explanations of the exhibits. Go on a day when there are only 2 tour ships or less. We weren't crowded. Food was so-so but adequate We loved the lorikeets and the sea... More

We went to Coral World Ocean Park as part of our SeaTrek deal -- the US$19 admission was included in our US$79 SeaTrek ticket. If not going for SeaTrek, wait till you get to St. Thomas to pay for your admission, so you can both save the online fee of US$5, plus use a $3 off coupon you can get... More

We took our family to Snuba dive here and it was such a great experience with Tammy! We, however, did not have enough time to check out the rest of the Park. This was a great day that we will always remember!
