      Sea lion swim with REMO
      We did the sea lion swim:) It was an awesome experience!! Shyanne and Brenna were wonderful!! Not only did they teach us all about the two sea lions we interacted with (Freddie and Reno) but they also made our experience unforgettable! We were able to pet him, do tricks with him and even get kisses from him (REMO) these creatures are truly amazing and they made the experience seamless! This experience was worth every penny!!! And also, Sydney made sure she caught all our interactions on camera!! We have spectacular pictures too!!! These three young ladies went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time with our handsome lion, REMO:)

      Dolphin encounter
      Meg and Lico (the dolphin) are awesome. They made it very special for my wife and four young children. It was an awesome experience that none of us will ever forget. P.S. Lico was great with the kids and very friendly I’d highly recommend this encounter and will definitely do it again when we come back! Thank you!

      Kari the Dolphin Trainer rocked.
      We did the dolphin swim with 5 - 18 year old boys! They loved it. If you go, request Kari. Not saying the other people weren’t good - we didn’t have them but Kari was awesome. She made things so personal and fun for everyone. Well worth the price! I’ve done dolphin swims and they don’t compare. We were in the water 30 minutes interacting and floating (lol). Highly recommend

      Swim with Dolphins
      We reserved a swim with the dolphins through our resort. Although Coral World is not big in size, it has some amazing exhibits. It was easy to find and easy to get our wrist bands. The trainers for the dolphins are super accommodating. Will help you to get the perfect picture. All you have to do is ask. It was an amazing experience!!

      Love swimming with Dolphins!
      My friend and I had swimming with dolphins on our bucket lists. Coral World did not disappoint! We got to learn so much about dolphins and swam with Noahlani, a blind dolphin. It was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Worth every penny! And Meg was an awesome guide!

      Dolphin swim was the BEST PART of our Disney cruise
      We (30YO, 35) visited St. Thomas as a port on our week-long cruise with my mom (60s), my brother and sister-in-law (30-40) and their two kids (7, 10). I booked the Dolphin Splash and Swim a few months before our cruise - and spots were already filling up, but I was able to get tickets for all 7 of us. It was the absolute highlight of our cruise (we were on Disney and there were many things to excite the kids - but this was the only thing they kept talking about afterward). I booked the tickets directly from Coral World instead of through our cruise - so if you’re in the same boat see some planning advice below. For the actual Dolphin swim we had Jasmine as our dolphin trainer and Wes as our photographer. There were about 30 people signed up for the dolphin swim and they split us up into 3 groups - our group was my family of 7 plus 2 girls in their 20s who were visiting the island and 1 girl about 18-20 who was traveling solo. Jasmine led us into the open-sea dolphin enclosure onto a deck that was about calf-deep in the water. Because all of us were comfortable swimming, we were able to get right in the water and meet our dolphin ambassador - Ping. Jasmine taught us about dolphin life while we floated and got to know Ping with a few back and belly rubs. She showed us some of the basic commands and had us each pose for a few pictures with Ping. We floated in our smaller groups and Wes was taking photos of us the whole time - which we really appreciated since we couldn’t bring anything in the water with us other than our swimsuits, water shoes (which are provided for you if you don’t have some of your own), and hats/sunglasses. Even though we had to leave our phones/camera behind, Wes got both posed individual photos of us with Ping (most of us gave her a kiss on the chin but one of us got a more exciting photo in which Ping was showing off a bit), and candid photos - including the multiple surprise splashes from Ping! It was awesome to just swim with Ping and not have to worry about posing for a photo or getting a good shot of the kids - I was really glad my brother and sister-in-law got to enjoy the experience as much as the rest of us and not worry about taking photos. I think we were in the water for a total of 45 minutes, swimming with Ping the whole time while she circled around us, played fetch with us, vocalized a lot and splashed us with her tail. The trainers mentioned that the dolphins participate voluntarily and there is no set experience (e.g. the dolphins don’t always give rides). While I did go into the experience expecting to be able to hold on to a dorsal fin being pulled by a dolphin - I did not even give it a second thought once we were in the water. All of us - my mom, my brother, my niece and nephew - were laughing with joy the whole time. The experience is worth EVERY PENNY. Our trainer Jasmine has worked at Coral World since before they built the dolphin enclosure and gave us a lot of history of the park. PLANNING FOR THE TRIP: Our dolphin swim was at 12:45 PM and we had to arrive 5 minutes early. If you’re schedule is similar and you’re arriving on a cruise, I’d recommend the following: 1. Get ready to spend all day on land - there is plenty to do! I would get off the ship as early as possible and grab a taxi ride to Coki Beach/Coral World (they are right next to each other). Taxi rides to Coki Beach/Coral World are a standard $14 per person each way paid in cash only so it’s pretty expensive to go back to the ship for lunch like you can at other ports. 2. We spent 2-3 hours at Coki Beach. Coki Beach is one of the smaller beaches in a pretty cove. If you plan to set up a sitting area at the beach, you can expect rental prices for an umbrella and chairs (I think the umbrellas ranged $10-20 and a chair is $7. Since we were the first ones on the beach we put our stuff under a palm tree. There are restaurant waitstaff walking around the beach periodically if you want to enjoy food or drinks. 3. We walked up the wooden stairs from the beach that lead directly to Coral World around 10:30 AM. There are a fair number of shaded seating areas in Coral World. The Dolphin swim includes general admission to the park, which you should take advantage of - at least 2 hours of enjoying the park. I wish we had gotten there a bit earlier because every 30 minutes or so there are educational presentations on different animals. We made it in time to meet a sea lion at 11:00 AM. We spent some time in the lorikeet enclosure as well - where you can purchase a small cup of nectar for $3 to feed the lorikeets (who will land on the kids arms to get to the nectar). There are TONS of iguanas everywhere all over the park and my nephew kept count of how many he saw throughout the day (I think he counted 41). 4. There is a small grill within Coral World where you can get hamburgers/sandwiches at the usual attraction-pricing of $15-20. My husband and I split a cheeseburger and it was plenty of food.

      Great experience
      Definitely check out this interactive aquarium, as well as the shark encounter. I did both and it was amazingly beautiful. The staff was extremely nice and insightful, every which way we turned we were surprised by knowledge, and beautiful creatures. Taylor was our guide on the shark encounter and she made the tour incredible. It was great to see and hear that the animals are well taken care of. I’ll definitely be back and highly recommend to add on your next visit to USVI!

      Fun experiencing sea life up close
      Small but fun park. Very engaging with up close and personal opportunities with sea life. Not busy so it was easy to see the park very quickly. We had 3 reservations- shark experience, dolphin encounter and dolphin splash and swim. The trainers were very knowledgeable and provided personal attention and answered all of our curiosities about the sea life. If going, plan other things to do as you can experience the entire park in a morning or afternoon, including paid attractions.

      Glen is the GOAT!
      This was my first experience with snuba. Glen was our guide and he was great: experienced and knowledgeable. I’m anxious so had some trouble when I first sat underwater on the platform. I stood up and told Glen I was feeling anxious and he had me start with standing on the platform and placing my face in the water. He encouraged me to sit on the platform when I was ready. I did and felt better. Once we got started he slowly guided us through the coral. He snapped photos and video and watched us carefully. The coral was beautiful! We were down for about 30 minutes. Awesome experience!!

    Sea trek with the dolphins is definitely a new experience but is not worth the price. The photographer captured more of one party than the other and the dolphins were not even in the pictures. In an experience like this, pictures need to be on point. Then they tried to charge 60 dollars for pictures that my entire group believed was not worth it.

    Be advised you are not allowed to touch the dolphin in this experience. You are just allowed to look. You are in the water for approximately 10 minutes following the rope that is placed in the water to guide you.

    The only good thing I can say about this experience is the 2 men (cant remember their names) made sure everyone was trained on the signs to communicate in the water as well as made sure everyone felt comfortable getting in and out the water.

    Other than that, it was not worth it.

    My party missed our original scheduled Sea Trek session due to our involvement in a car accident in route to the location. I called the customer service number and I did not have a pleasant experience with the lady who answered the phone; she showed no empathy nor did she offer any solutions. I decided to go to the location and thankfully I met Kenan. He was very nice and said that we could come back the next day to see if they had any cancellations. By a miracle, two people cancelled and we were able to enjoy the experience. Raul was a great guide.

    Another great thing is that the food was reasonably priced and they had vegan options.

    We booked this excursion independently as the cruise line no longer offered as an option. The staff went above and beyond to provide a safe, fun experience and ensured that we knew what to expect. They took the time to point out some interesting fish and took many pictures which were available for purchase. We did a similar helmet dive in Aruba and this one was much better. We went down deeper into the ocean (about 20 feet) and the walk lasted about 20 minutes. There is also a beach nearby where you can rent chairs and umbrellas. If on a cruise, make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to return to ship. There are also two different ports in St. Thomas so be sure to return to correct port.

    The underwater guides were fabulous, fun, safe and informative. The views were fantastic! The park was awesome to walk around and learn about all the sea life. The best part was meeting one of the dolphin trainers who took her time telling us about the dolphins and the Island and her heart for her job and the animals was evident by the smile on her face and the way she lit up talking about it. Her best advice when we told her we would be visiting the island of St. Johns the next day was to hike the Rams Head Trail and visit Salt Pond Beach and she didn't disappoint!! We went and we had a great time, so thank you Coral World! (I wish she would have shared her name, but I know she was from South Carolina). :)

    The whole experience was epic!!! Being 20 ft under water fully surrounded by beautiful fish felt surreal and magical. I would gladly do it again when there is an opportunity!
    I have to say a special THANK YOU to the team which led our tour - a guide, a safely diver, a person who provided oxygen, and a person who gave us detailed instructions at the beginning! (I am very sorry that I do not remember the names). Initially I was a bit nervous as I am generally a little afraid of being under water, never dived, and even snorkeling is not very comfortable for me. But you made me feel safe and relaxed which let me fully enjoy the experience!
    It was unforgettable! And I strongly recommend anyone (who is medically fit to do it) to try

    Our guide, Haley and Raul who provided instructions and John who took video were all very nice and patient in helping this 70 year old down the ladder into the water. I never learned to swim so this was a way for me to have a new experience with my daughter. My only criticism is after paying $182 for two tickets and then tipping the staff, a $36.99 charge for a USB drive with a video was my only option if I wanted a memory. A simple photo of my daughter and I would have been great, even for $20.00. Just wish there had been one or two more affordable options.

    It was an amazing experience, I don't know how to swim and was still able to do this. The staff were amazing, John and Raul were super helpful! The sea trek price covers the park, but you wouldn't need more than 2 hours, the park itself is super small. I would totally do this again!

    Would have loved to experience this attraction but never made it. When we booked we requested hotel pickup but never received a time for pickup. We emailed a few times to see what time to expect pickup and on the day of we emailed to see if our reservation had been canceled because of weather. We did not get a response to either request. The only correspondence we received was an email thanking us for our visit and to leave a review. Currently trying to dispute the charge now since there was no one to speak to about requesting a refund. Overall I’m very disappointed in this whole experience.

    3 of us 65+ friends did the SeaTrek Helmet during our Cruise stop. We booked it ourselves, not as a cruise excursion.
    Eve, Noora and Wyatt M were so fun and great to work with that we all felt comfortable to do this dive. They explained each part to us.
    I would highly recommend it but please know the Taxi is $15 each person each way so that does add to the cost of the excursion.
    I would like to mention Kylie also - this gal is a energetic part of Coral World and a great asset to greet guests!
