Most of what is advertised on the website is available but it is not fully accurate so the URL needs to be updated (shark tank, etc.). Beautiful location and impressive staff.

Being from Boston with an amazing aquarium, this was not great, but it's a fun and educational place to go as a family. Just be sure to book any extras (sea lion experience, or glass bottom boat) online ahead of time. They will often not...More

Its a beautiful setting and nice aquarium but we enjoyed the birds the most. Kids can touch the sharks and see cucumbers and sea stars. Nice place.

Great education about the animals! Knowledgeable staff who care for the animals. However, the animals need more to fulfill them and a wider variety of experiences. A lot of fun, once in a lifetime moments. Overall upkeep and refurbishing could be improved.

Coral World is a neat place to visit. The best thing to do is to schedule an excursion or two, because the park itself is very small. The staff is very friendly, and the excursions are really cool.

We are glad you enjoyed our marine park and participating in Snuba. We have lots of add-on activities that start at $40. But all of the exhibits and presentations are included with your admission.

Yes you can have a GoPro in the park. If you participate in the Sea Lion activities you will be asked to leave it with your things.
