The staff was so amazing!!
I spent my second day on the island at coral world and I had the absolute best experience. Had the pleasure of swimming with Nola the dolphin and she was so sweet and outgoing. All of the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable about all of the animals. The sea trek was fully booked the night before we came so we decided to swim with dolphins instead, but we got SO lucky and were able to book our spots the morning of!! Again, I cannot stress this enough the staff was so amazing!! I already cannot wait to come back to the islands and I will be back!

The best thing we did on St.Thomas
My family of two adults and two kids swam with the dolphins and had the most amazing experience! Loki, the dolphin, was so sweet and friendly. The trainers Jasmine and Cari (spelling sorry!) were just excellent! They were so attentive to the kids to ensure they felt safe on the platform. They were informative, fun, and so knowledgeable. Its obvious they are passionate about their jobs and truly care for the animals. This experience was the best thing we did on St.Thomas and absolutely worth the cost. Highly recommend!
