A beautiful place that fit right in with the beautiful landscape
This was such a wonderful place. We did Scuba and Swim with the Sea Lions, both were great experiences! Even if we didn’t have experiences booked I still would’ve loved our visit. There was plenty to see and the views were awesome. It is a smaller place and wasn’t crazy busy, which was what I loved the most. (If I wanted a large, overly commercialized theme park experience then I could do that back home.) This was a beautiful place that fit right in with the beautiful landscape around it and took nothing away from the land it was sitting on. We were there all day so we also ate breakfast and lunch at the stands and the food was good. After our visit we were able to walk right over to Coki beach, it was too busy for us to stay but it was another beautiful view and a must see while already there.

An awesome experience
Our family of four (two kids ages 10 and 7) visited Coral World this past week during our vacation. We did the Sea Lion swim which was an awesome experience thanks to trainers Brenna, Sydney and Sky. They were all very friendly and knowledgeable and guided us through the whole experience. It was a little nerve-racking being with 400+ lbs sea lions but the trainers made it fun and memorable. The rest of the park was a little sleepy when we first arrived (right as it was opening) but by the time we left it was bustling. The park was clean and had interesting exhibits, with talks and activities happening throughout the morning. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and knowledgeable. We had an enjoyable morning!

You could tell they cared for the animals
The place was small but we really enjoyed the sea lion swim. The trainers were wonderful and did a really great job making us feel comfortable during our event. You could tell they cared for the animals and took pride in their roles. Cheyenne made us feel very welcome and helped us through the orientation.
