Coral World Ocean Park, Smith Bay

3.8
#3 of 7 in Parks in East End
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your East End trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This place was amazing! They had such a great staff to help my family and I. We did SNUBA and it was the most beautiful and memorable experience we have ever had. They managed to squeeze my family in right before they closed, they had great accommodations. Our instructor, Glenn, was the best person to teach and help us. When we were in the water, my mom was very scared of the ocean and Glenn stayed with her the whole time and held her hand. He made her feel safe and comfortable, you don’t find that too often. Overall, this whole expierence was fantastic, you’ll definitely see my family there again sometime soon!
  • We are on our honeymoon and scheduled the swim with turtles and got a private tour with two other couples. Alexis? I think was his name, was a wonderful ALL knowing very good guide! We swam with Dunkin and it was so cool! Unfortunately the shop's were all closed because it wasn't a "ship" day. :( Would have loved to have a shirt and souvenirs from here. Oh well. But the experience was phenomenal! :)
  • Lovely little aquarium where they rehab animals. The staff were simply outstanding. Fun place to visit. Plus there’s a gorgeous little beach next store with great snorkeling.
  • Wow this place was so much fun. The guided tour was totally worth it. They take the time to explain everything. Also it’s VERY wheelchair friendly!!
  • Yeah... Not as big as we thought. Cool opportunities to see some fish but not the highlight of the trip I thought it would be. Very friendly staff though.
