This was a wonderful experience. Eric was our staff member and it was obvious he is passionate about marine life and conservation. He was very knowledgeable and patient. He is a real asset to Coral World. Our experience included meeting and swimming with turtles Duncan and Tortuga. It was just our family of three so we felt lucky to have the encounter to ourselves. We learned a lot about the turtles and had a great time.
Guide was very knowledgeable and professional. Was cool to be able to be in the water with the turtles and interact with them.

Loved being able to swim with turtles and hold one. Enjoyed that we were not on a crowded cruise ship excursion
The aquarium is small with not much to do but the Turtle Encounter was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable and you can tell she loved her job. The turtle was extremely friendly.
Not your run of the mill experience...this facility emphasized education and rehabilitation.
