COVID-19 Information

Sea You Soon!

At Coral World Ocean Park, our animals, team members, and guests are our top priorities. We are committed to providing a safe environment for the community.

As we continue to gradually reopen and welcome visitors back, we are closely monitoring news and information regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition to maintaining the highest health and safety practices, we have increased sanitation and disinfecting routines with extra focus on high touch and high traffic areas.  We benefit from large open-air spaces and have adjusted our operation to allow for proper social distancing (6ft apart).  We will continue to implement preventive measures in line with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and local mandates.  We are adjusting our operations according to the recommendations of health authorities as the situation develops. Thank you all for your continued patience.
