The sea lions swim was the best part of all. The trainer was very friendly and accommodating. The Sea Lion was so friendly and gentle. I would do this adventure again. I loved it.

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.

We swam with the sea lions at Coral World and had a great time. It's a small but fun attraction and highly recommend it.

The Coral World was a nice place to visit while on St. Thomas. The underwater view was great. Clear water and many fish species to see.

Highly recommended if you have young children - it is safely organized and win-win for us and the sea lion. We enjoyed all the short "shows" by the staff. We learned about the local sharks, and the sea... More

This is hard to find but right next Colki Beach Needs some work to be worth the trip. More marine animals . Everything is extra if you want to dive etc. Great snorkeling but just as good at beach next door. We were bored in an hour.
