Had a nice relaxing day observing all of the turtles and sharks. Loved feeding the lorikeets! Very easy to get around. Lunch was ok but I was there to see the animals!

We had a great time at Coral World! My two teen girls swam with the sea lions and it was an experience they will never forget. Jessica was fantastic and my girls loved her.

We actually snorkeled just outside the park and had a great experience. You can tell they feed the fish as they are very friendly!

Most of what is advertised on the website is available but it is not fully accurate so the URL needs to be updated (shark tank, etc.). Beautiful location and impressive staff.

Its a beautiful setting and nice aquarium but we enjoyed the birds the most. Kids can touch the sharks and see cucumbers and sea stars. Nice place.

Yes you can have a GoPro in the park. If you participate in the Sea Lion activities you will be asked to leave it with your things.
