Due to hurricanes Irma and Maria the Shark Encounter is not available at this time. Please join us in one of our other activities like the Turtle Encounter or Sea Lion Swim.
Enter the world of these fascinating, magnificent, and misunderstood creatures through our educational Shark Encounter. Learn the truths and myths about the ocean’s top predators.
Price includes all day admission to Coral World Ocean Park
After your orientation session, a guide will take you to Coral World Ocean Park’s Shark Shallows, where you will have an opportunity to enter a pool harboring a variety of juvenile sharks that inhabit the waters of the US Virgin Islands. Experience the thrill of viewing the sharks up close from above and below the water as they circle the pool.
Become a shark fan instead of a foe. Coral World Ocean Park is dedicated to the preservation of the shark species as well as all marine wildlife. In an effort to assist in the preservation of sharks, Coral World has recreated a shark nursery, offering juvenile sharks every opportunity to grow in a safe environment before being released into the wild. We hope that through our education and preservation efforts we will help to allow the shark species to thrive now and in the future.
A portion of the proceeds from this activity go towards shark conservation efforts.
If you are coming from a cruise ship and this tour is offered through your cruise line, you must book through the cruise line.
