“Beautiful oasis”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

The Butterfly Garden is a lovely respite from the more activie tourist activities and shopping stress on Saint Thomas. The staff is courteous and pleasant and the butterflies are well worth seeing and learning about. Although kids will enjoy the experience, it is a good one for people of any and every age. Use the coupon in the St. Thomas tour map to save a few dollars off of the admission price...just like at Coral World. Besure to listen to the presntation made by staff people!

“Our favorite stop when we are in St Thomas!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

A visit to The Butterfly Garden is also the highlight of our trips to St Thomas. The staff is highly knowledgeable and very friendly! We love that the Garden is right at the cruise port. So convenient! The garden was in full bloom on our May 19, 2014 visit. We saw an abundance of butterflies in so many vibrant colors! Perfect for families, please support this great place on your next visit!

“Peaceful oasis to visit on the way back to your ship”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Butterfly Garden is located right at the cruise ship pier, and is a peaceful and quiet stop as you return from a shore excursion before reboarding your ship. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This isn't the largest butterfly garden by far, but is a pleasant oasis amidst the noise and hassle of reboarding your ship. Beware, however, that closing time is really early, and quite a while before most ships' all-aboard time, so we saw several fellow passengers who had purchased tickets from the shore excursion desk, disappointed when the arrived to find the garden already closed. Check hours before buying your ticket to make sure you will have time to visit, or better yet, buy your ticket at the garden.
