Coral World Ocean Park

Activities and Animal Encounters

We offer activities on days the park is closed. If you have a scheduled activity on a closed day, someone will meet you and your party at the front gate 5 to 10 minutes before your activity. You and your party with be given coupons for General Admission to come back to the park on an open day.

Ocean Literacy

An ocean-literate person understands the Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts about the ocean, can communicate about the ocean in a meaningful way, and is able to make informed and responsible decisions regarding the ocean and its resources.

One Ocean

At Coral World, we believe the ocean connects everything on Earth, including humanity. We have multiple ongoing conservation and restoration projects to ensure that our influence on the ocean is a positive one.

PARK STATUS: Coral World Ocean Park’s recovery efforts are moving along after sustaining two Category 5 hurricanes. While our island and park have not quite returned to our pre-hurricane state, you can enjoy a fun & fascinating visit to the park, and some time for swimming at Coki Beach. Let all your family and friends know that you helped with the recovery just by visiting us! Use the hashtags #VIStrong and #CoralWorld on social media.

“We have snorkeled with our kids so they are familiar with the snorkel gear. Snuba was great though because you could go down to 20 feet and stay under for a good 30 min. The instructor was patient and a great under water guide. We saw a great amount of water life and had a great time. I think this was a great step towards wanting to do full scuba diving.”

“Coral World is an awesome place!! We did the sea lion encounter and it was incredible. Kristin was so great with our 10 year old daughter and Austin was incredibly helpful. We had such a great day. Everyone there was so friendly. If you visit St. Thomas go to Coral World you will not be disappointed!!”

“You should definitely book a sea lion swim or encounter… we did the encounter because our 6yr old is under the weight limit.. it was amazing and so unforgettable. They really care for the animals there.. it was so sad to see the devastation the island endured from the hurricane… but they are still open and welcoming us back!! We will go back every time we’re in St. Thomas!!”
