We were looking for a way to spend 3 hours or so before dinner one afternoon so we gave Coral world a try. It is small but had nice attractions. We were able to feed the stingrays and the lorikeets. Since it was slow we got personalized attention. The best part was interacting with the lorikeets. The birds landed right... More

A must do is the Sea Trek tour. Very affordable, worth the time. One of the best experiences I've had in St Thomas. Right next door to Coki Beach as well. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I will be back again! Thanks to all the staff at Coral World!

We spent an enjoyable afternoon at Coral World while vacationing on St. Thomas. The park's features were both educational and fun to see, particularly the underwater building that is equivalent to a huge, unlimited aquarium. We also met several huge sea turtles, sea lions, various exotic birds and what seemed like dozens of iguanas just walking around in the open.... More

Nice aquarium,beautiful exotic birds (that was our highlight). You can book and excursion to swim with the sea lions which looked like fun. It is right next to Coki Beach which is nice but busy.

If you are going just to see the park, it is not work the price of the admission. Perhaps if you booked one of the add on adventures it may be. But, as a "nature park" it was small, and very unimpressive. It appears large from the map they give but is very small. If you have been to any... More

Coral World is a small family owned marine park on the island of St Thomas. One of the many things that Coral World does is take in any stranded or injured animals. Our vet tech and staff work to rehab the animals and release them once they are strong enough to go back to the wild. More

I am a non swimmer/snorkeler but love the ocean and sea life. The underwater observatory was perfect for me. I saw the underwater world come to life without getting wet. The park entry fee was worth the experience alone. The park was small but fun.

The observation tower sits off shore and goes all the way to the ocean floor. There are portholes around the entire lower level so guests can look out in any directions and see the fish and marine life in the ocean. More
