Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web
Observe and inspect marine life at Coral World Ocean Park, an "open-water" site based around a system of tanks fed by ocean waters. A highlight is an 80,000 gallon open tank that allows wildlife in from above as well as by water. The park offers humerous sea lion shows, as they perform with skilled trainers, and touch pools with various creatures. Pick up snacks and refreshments in the shark bar. Be sure to descend to the depths of the undersea observatory to take in life on a natural coral reef 4.5 m (15 ft) below the surface.

  • I stayed on the island for 7 days and set one day for the coral world. I am sad to admit but you will not need an entire day or find many activities to keep you there. After the hurricane they're slowing rebuilding the park which is great but what they do have is limited yet still enjoyable. The touch pond is extremely limited. The shark tank is awesome. the two set ups for the sea turtles are a bit on the small side but are still great. The stingrays are cool but just ok. Their lorikeet feeding spot is one of the weaker aspects of the center. They do offer a nature walk that is basically 50 smaller tortoise in a pen. Nice but much to be desired. I didn't see the sea lions but I can imagine they're awesome. The prices are steep on swimming with them which I really wanted to do but for 126$ it makes you double check. I paid for my mother and I to swim with the sea turtles and that was hands down the best part of the center. Sadly they lost our photos just before we were getting them. We had them fix their mistake by just allowing us to go back with the turtles and retake photos with my camera ( which is high end ). So for that I would rate customer service at a 5 but overall there just isn't much to do. Sure you could do the sea trek or snuba, but after going scuba diving I didn't want to ruin it with those. So yes you can have fun but it's just limited at the moment. Also they're not open Friday or Saturday
  • Absolutly loved the turtle exshibite. Had an amazing tower that went underwater so that you could look out into the ocean from underwater. Needs a few updates on some areas but overall cool little place.
  • During our 7 day trip to this gorgeous island, we got scammed by getting our car booted at Coral World parking lot. After an argument with the "towing company" (also owner of the Coral World), we called the police. They showed up after 25mins and after statements taken from admission booth (since we went into CW and a very nice lady at the admission booth told us that it was too late (missed most of the shows) and advised us to come back tomorrow), from us and from the individual claims to be from towing company, police said this was a civil matter and we have to take to small claims court (also advised that since we are leaving in few days, not to bother to come back for $150 fee). They asked for an identification from me, my work company/address/phone/title and 20 other types of information, and when it came to the individual who booted our car, they didn't get any info (they claimed they already know that person!). Great job Coral World, I was going to spend that money in the park anyway, didn't have to scam people.. I recorded every second of the scam and will put it on Youtube.
  • Amazing place.. took the family for a sea lion encounter.. wow.. it was worth every penny ... Staff is dedicated, knowledgeable and love all the marine life..
  • Nice place cool fish and learn alot bout ocean life
