Fabulous! This was a wonderful outing to a nature park where we saw small sharks being fed, an informative talk with a trainer and their sea lion, stingrays we were able to feed under the watchful eye of a park expert, iguanas roaming around, and an underwater observatory that was amazing. This was a relaxed and great experience.

My wife and I were picked up at a convenient location off the cruise pier. After a 20 minute drive we arrived at Coral world. Crowd was light. The guides did 15 minute presentations at their various exhibits and were very informative and enthusiastic. Overall a up close opportunity to see and learn about aquatic life in their (close to) natural habitat.
This venue went out of its way to open for us on New Year's Day. With only two cruise ships in port, it appeared they opened for us and not for the locals as there was no crowding and ease of access no matter what exhibit you chose to engage. The undersea viewing of the coral and fish life was over the top. The additional presentations which included birds, turtles, sting rays, various aquariums displays, and a seal show were interest captivating. Iguanas were everywhere. Although we did not eat there, food was available. One cannot say enough about the enthusiastic, young, and knowledgeable staff. Catch them when they are feeding the residents; a printed schedule does assist. Some have mentioned a bit dated appearance in some areas which is true, but the environment was clean and the displays presentable.

My husband and I visited this park and had a great time. There were informative lectures throughout the park about sharks, the park itself, birds, seals, rays and other things. The park is nicely kept. We were given 3 hours there and the tour of the place lasted about 2 1/2 hours so we had plenty of time to explore and then have a beverage before we were picked up.
We, as senior citizens, were looking for an excursion that was simpler and wouldn't wear us out. We did enjoy the excursion except for the 5 iguanas on the deck weren't afraid of anything. They would rush to a table of visitors if they were eating and wait for something to drop to the deck. Very persistent!

Coral World was excellent to get a snap shot of an aquatic wild life refuge and associated flora/fauna. At our own pace and just long enough to get a good idea of the Caribbean and creatures that live within and upon. Good understandable presentations from trained and educated scientists. Limited crowds allowed for easy movement throughout park. Would go back again.
Enjoyed the Coral Gardens
Coral World Express provided a great experience for all ages. As senior citizens, it was an easy walk to each area of a the park. You were able to sit and watch the various creatures eat, play, swim, or perform in the comfort of air conditioning and out of the sun.
Guides were very knowledgable and informative
Would book this tour again and again. The park is beautiful, the fish you see are in their natural habitat, activities to do throughout the day, and the views are breathtaking.
Our kids really enjoyed the hands-on experiences!
This tour was terrific, because there was a lot to see and learn on this outing.
Nice variety of activities. Very family friendly.
My wife and I really enjoyed this excursion we seen sea life in tanks and in the wild. The next time we go the gradkids will be with us, I know they will enjoy it.
Coral World is a bit rough at the edges but is a great place to take kids. Adjacent to the park is a great beach for a quick swim.
