Do the Sea Lion Adventure

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!

We were surprised at the amount and types of activities and exhibits there were at coral world. We thought it was primarily a place to see sea lions, but there is much more. The tropical birds and feeding them was wonderful. The sea turtles were inspiring and you can even interact with them. The exhibits on the fish and coral... More

Thank you Gerald for visiting Coral World. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time with us. What we lack in size, we make up in passion and dedication for the conservation of the marine environment that surrounds our beautiful islands. The park is constantly evolving and we hope that you can visit again next time you are on islands.... More

We wanted to do the SeaTrek but even though our child was old enough, they didn't weigh enough. So we decided on Snuba and we're SO glad we did. We LOVED Snuba! Recommend for kids (tween+) as Snuba takes some getting used to and can cause some anxiety about breathing underwater. However, once our guide, Ross, assured us we would... More

Thank you for your review and choosing to visit Coral World while on St Thomas. Snuba is a wonderful experience and great introduction to Scuba diving. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful team of divers that will take the time to ensure that you are comfortable with the equipment and breathing underwater. Sea Trek is also a lot... More

My 10 year old daughter and I experienced the Coral World Sea Lion Swim last Friday. It was an amazing experience! My daughter was so excited to interact so closely with 2 sea lions: Remilo (sp?) and Omar. Yes, we got to interact with 2 sea lions because we luckily were the only guests in our afternoon session! We swam... More

If you are an animal lover, I highly encourage you to visit this place. You can't go wrong supporting this animal-centered facility! We were able to feed sting rays and learn about baby sharks up close and personal...and free! My family paid to swim with the sea turtles and a sea lion...amazing! Both these experiences were well worth the cost.... More
