Coral World Ocean Park

Interact with tropical marine life, come face-to-face with sharks and discover aquariums full of colorful underwater creatures at this ocean park.

Coral World Ocean Park showcases the creatures of the Caribbean Sea and beyond. Swim with sea lions, touch turtles and examine coral reef from the underwater observatory tower.

Enter this complex of pools and aquariums and learn about the exotic sea creatures that inhabit the waters around St. Thomas. Many of the animals here have been rescued from around the coastline of the Virgin Islands, while others have come from as far away as South America.

Head for the turtle pool to watch large green sea turtles gliding through the water. Learn about their habitat and behavior from knowledgeable staff or sign up for a turtle encounter to get up-close with these astonishing animals.

Walk to the shallow stingray pool. Try to spot their eyes or tail poking out from the sandy floor. During feeding times, visitors can enjoy the unusual sensation of having food sucked from the palm of their hands by a ray.

Among the most popular outdoor tanks is the shark pool. Observe the sharks from above as they splash their tales in the shimmering water. Venture to the underwater viewing area to admire them from a different perspective.

Another park highlight is the sea lions. Sign up for a sea lion swim to meet these affectionate, furry mammals.

Don’t miss the undersea observatory tower. Descend 15 feet (5 meters) underwater and marvel at a coral reef populated by barracuda, schools of silversides and other species.

Join an hour-long cruise on the park’s semi-submarine. The underwater cabin is lined with large windows, allowing you to spot spooky shipwrecks and colorful fish during the excursion. Trips depart regularly from the dock at Coki Beach.

Coral World Ocean Park is situated just east of Coki Beach and is a 20-minute drive from Charlotte Amalie. The park is open daily from November through April. Between April and October, opening times vary so be sure to check ahead. An admission fee applies for all ages.

      We didn't realize how much you would need to depend on taxi or the public transportation and the distance to walk from the property to anywhere. We appreciate the island recovery process but there is a constant noise from the shuttered resort next door-- generator or some other machinery when you ...

        Great views of St John from pools. Margaritaville restaurant food was ok but not spectacular. The tall Hostess was rude though. Accommodations were nice. They do not change towels out unless you call them. Restaurants in Red Hook have severe parking problems. Drinks at bar were fair. Fishy smell ...

              The view was great from the room. The room was also right next to the bar/restaurant and a pool which we loved. The room was nice, nothing fancy but we were definitely comfortable. The only negative was the warm water in the shower would go in and out. But overall very enjoyable experience and would ...
