Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the St Thomas Shore Excursion: Coral World Ocean Park General Admission Ticket. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This was a neat park where petting stingrays was included in the general park admission, as is a pool where you can feel starfish and sea urchins. Underground aquariums had a variety of sea creatures to see. Cab fare is currently $9/person each way to get there (20-25 min). Confirm with your driver before getting in that you are going straight back to the cruise ship if you're on a time limit (not related to the actual park)! Small iguanas wandering all around, which was fun. At the beach, umbrella rental was $10 and lounge chairs were $5 each. Park staff were friendly and helpful.
We very much enjoyed Coral World. Unfortunately our friends who were to join us were caught in the bad snow storm that hit the east coast! They missed the cruise and vacation with us. I contacted Viator for refund of 2 tickets we could not use but I recieved no response from them I am disappointed.
Note from Viator: Hi Lisa - thanks for your feedback and I'm glad you had a good time at Coral World. Our customer service team will be in touch with you shortly in regards to the refund of the other tickets.
Our guide was great, but the Ocean Park was a little disappointing. It was much smaller than we thought it would be... We did enjoy the snorkeling and beach next to the Park though!
Very enjoyable afternoon, the people at Coral World were knowledgeable about the sharks and other aquatic life. The young man who took us in shark shallows was awesome! Only negative $20 taxi ride per person on top of the admission price!
It would have been nice to have been met at the port gate and be a round trip included in the price since I have mobility issues but the excursion was at my pace and very enjoyable. Considering the time of year, it was very pleasant and comfortable.
This is a small park and doesn't take long to do...There is no transportation there from Viators so you have to catch a taxi or shuttle and that can be expensive if more than 2 people going....I would like Viators to provide transportation to and from and then you don't have to worry...but we enjoyed ourselves
the facility was a little small and worn, but the kids enjoyed the sea-lion show
