Coral World Ocean Park Tours

Coral World is considered one of the top family attractions in the US Virgin Islands. Much of this integrated marine park displays the true habitat of its subjects, with both indoor and outdoor observation facilities meant to exemplify the diverse and plentiful nature of the area’s marine life. The park’s major attractions include a touch pool with hermit crabs, starfish, and sea cucumbers; nearly two dozen aquarium exhibits; and its 50,000-gallon Deep Reef Tank, sporting some of mother nature’s deadliest carnivores, such as moray eels, tarpon, and plenty of sharks.

The Basics
A general admission ticket to the park grants access to all five acres of the facility, including outdoor pools, aquariums, nature trails, and the Undersea Observatory Tower. Other interactive activities are available for additional costs, offering chances to cruise in a semi-submarine for views of the sea floor, snuba dive in the Caribbean Sea, or view endangered sea turtles alongside an expert instructor. While sea lion encounters are offered onsite for an additional fee, Viator does not offer this activity.
  • This attraction is a must-see for families.
  • Choose between a general admission ticket and a combo pass that includes a semi-submarine cruise, turtle encounter, or snuba dive adventure.
  • Most exhibits are wheelchair accessible; there’s a wheelchair elevator in the Caribbean Reef Encounter.

How to Get to Coral World Ocean Park
Making your way to the park is fairly easy provided you either rent a car while visiting St. Thomas or spend a bit extra on a cab. The ride from downtown typically takes 20 to 30 minutes and is easily navigable on the island’s major roads. It's also possible to take a short boat ride from Water Bay and Coki Point to dock right at the park.

When to Get There
Coral World is open year round, but the best time to visit is early in the morning right when the park opens, particularly on days when there are no cruise ships in port. The park hosts feedings and presentations throughout the day, so check the schedule ahead of your visit to ensure you don’t miss your favorites.

What's Nearby Coral World Ocean Park?
Travelers with extra time before or after a visit to the park can bring along a beach towel and spend some time on beautiful Coki Beach, located right next door. This white-sand beach is one of the best in the area for snorkeling thanks to the high concentration of tropical fish in the clear waters. It’s also possible to rent paddle boards and explore the nearby shoreline.
