Presentation Schedules

Coral World’s education goal is to create a learning experience for our visitors. Our hope is that by reaching our guests, we can initiate a positive change in people’s behavior towards the marine ecosystem, and our animal operation is designed with this goal in mind. Each public presentation, feeding and interactive program is unique and unstructured, allowing us to adapt the educational content for any particular group of guests.
