Trip Planner: Caribbean / U.S. Virgin Islands / St. Thomas / East End / Smith Bay / Coral World Ocean Park
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.

Giornata passata fra Coral Work e Coki Beach (accesso incluso nel biglietto). Il parco è relativamente piccolo ma con nelle vasche e fondali sottomarini da vedere restando asciutti.

The real treats though are wet: by scuba diver's helmet a few meters deep, to swim in a tank with 10 sharks (which apparently eat the minnows of the tank as a snack and are not therefore interested tourists!) to the bathroom with the sea lion. There is also an exit with a boat with the bottom below sea level with a porthole to look out. Cute but not exciting. NB: all activities you are charged extra. I would definitely recommend the dive with the helmet. The adjoining Beach lovely but after 16, when the mass of tourists ships back on board. Among the island's most beautiful beaches and sea.

The instructions I received helped give me confidence in the deeper water and for snorkelling in general. I saw lots of beautiful fish. more »

Small but fun. The open ocean aquarium is really cool, and seems to keep all the fish happy. Love what they're doing with the coral reef farm, and everything seems to be health. The sea turtle ponds were pretty small and sad, but most have been injured and are being fed and taken care of.

To be honest, this place wasn't the best, but some of it was terrible. For 1, it was small, you can finish the entire place in less than an hour! Unlike Gulf/Seaworld, this place is depressing! I liked the shows though. Please don't get TOO attached to this place.

FYI not entirely accessible for those with strollers or wheelchairs. Most exhibits do have ramps or low railings for young ones. It is small so easy to walk and get-in out. Coki beach argues oh had better ocean experience.

It is a neat place for the island. It is basically a sad sea world knock off. Park attendants were super friendly. Park was clean and well kept. Everything cost extra so be aware of that. A family of 4 could spend $400 in a hurry.

My family and I signed up for the boat tour group from our cruise ship. My mom is in a wheelchair and a few others were using walkers. nothing online said there would be stone pathways and no ramp onto the boat. our tour was to be 90 minutes. we were out and back to the dock in 35 minutes. Noone told us about what we were to be seeing except the diver showing us fish eating meow mix. what a joke.
