Coral World Ocean Park is one of the most popular attractions on the island of St. Thomas — for many good reasons.
With its aquariums, observatories, sea life encounters and water activities, Coral World provides an array of opportunities to experience the magical beauty of Caribbean marine life — up close and personal. What an intriguing one-of-a-kind complex!
Coral World strives to inspire and educate visitors while protecting the surrounding marine life.
For example, Snuba allows you to immerse yourself in the beauty of Caribbean waters — without scuba gear — while swimming in concert with tropical fish and other marine life. A certified guide leads you on an adventure through protected waters that surround Coral World Ocean Park’s Undersea Observatory Tower. How fabulous!
One of the newest additions to optional activities at Coral World is the Shark Encounter. Enchanting and educational, this unique experience will give you a chance to learn the truths and myths about the ocean’s number one “misunderstood” predators.
On land, photo opportunities abound throughout the park — from a tropical nature trail to colorful bird aviary and exotic marine displays.
To make your Coral World visit truly memorable, be sure to add a one-of-a-kind experience such as the Sea Lion Swim, Dolphin Trek, Snuba, or Shark Encounter.

A BIT ABOUT BANANAQUITS
The Bananaquit — pronounced banana-keet — is the official bird of the Virgin Islands. Known for its ability to easily adapt to human environments, it often visits gardens and may become surprisingly tame. Its nickname, “Sugar Bird,” comes from its affinity for bowls or bird feeders stocked with granulated sugar, a popular method for attracting the birds.
