When vacationing in St. Thomas, the scope of things to do and see is limitless. With all the beautiful sights, finding something to do will be easy. But for an encouter that you won't soon forget, visit Coral World Ocean Park.
Located adjacent to Coki Beach on Coki Point, Coral World Ocean Park offers so many activities for visitors that it's impossible not to want to see them all. The undersea observatory tower decends 15 feet below the sea so you can view a natural coral reef and wild fish; or stay on the top level for breathtaking views of St. Thomas. The Shark Shallows allows visitors to view a variety of sharks as they swim in the pool, and yes, you can sign up for a shark encounter and get in the water with them. Along with the shark tank, there is a stingray lagoon and a turtle pool.
If you have ever wanted to scuba dive, but never got around to getting certified, never fear; Coral World's Sea Trek is open to anyone, experienced or not. This underwater helmet-diving experience is like no other. Once you are briefed and suited, enjoy a walk along an underwater trail through the coral reef that surrounds Coral World’s Undersea Observatory. Observe the sea life up close and personal, all without getting your hair wet.
After your underwater adventure is complete, grab some lunch and head to the Sea Lion Swim, where you will have an opportunity to touch, pet and play games with the sea lions as they demonstrate their amazing agility. At the end of the encounter, the sea lions will give you a hug, a big wet kiss and the photo op of a lifetime! Coral World offers excursions and experiences like no other, and it's all right at your fingertips in beautiful St. Thomas.
