Started our VI visit here since it's always fun to see what's under all that water. Exhibits were simple, but nicely done; liked the friendly, knowledgeable staff. It was convenient to be able to go in and out to Coki Beach.

Staff and tRainers were nice. We had fun. Animal habitat needs to be larger. We felt sorry for the sea lions and the sea turtles.

Overall a good experience. The trainers were very nice and fun. The only negative was that you have to buy all the pictures taken for $100. They don't sell them separately. We already spent a lot of money on the sea lion swim then they...More

I've been to a lot of aquariums and as far as the wildlife, there was nothing extraordinary about Coral World. However, we found the iguanas amusing. They were sprawled all over the café area ready to eat anything that falls off your table...I do mean...More

I'm sure it would've been great! But their only open when cruise ships visit. We drove all the way up the island to find out they were closed. Didn't say this on the websites! We wasted gas and time.

Getting here was a huge pain but once there it was both educational and fun. The sea turtles are amazing! Make sure to watch feeding time in all the exhibits. Some maintenance is needed on attractions but seems to be normal down here.

Hi - does Coral World still have the Sea Trek Dive? Do you need to book this in advance (like a few days ?). I assume if you book this you have full admission to "ALL" events in the park. is that true? Is there a place to eat at Coral World ? Can you doo all the events at Coral World in the rain? Thank you Dee Dee

We didn't do the extras that required more money like the Sea Trek Dive, but others already answered that part of the question. We ate there, and the food was good enough -- mostly of the fast food variety and pretty... More
