About this Charlotte Amalie tour
Education, conservation, interaction.
From the amazing jaw fish who stands up to respect guests, to the large rays who gracefully flap through the waters, you're going to see an amazing array of sea creatures that you never even knew existed. You're going to learn about conservation, too, and about everything Coral World does to keep Caribbean marine life thriving.
Above all, you're going to be involved. At the various presentations held throughout the day, you can physically interact with a variety of different animals. Provide a friendly stingray with a tasty snack, affectionately pat a young shark on the back, or feed a beautiful tropical bird right out of your hands.
Life on and around the island is on display in a way that duplicates a variety of natural habitats at Coral World. You might consider St. Thomas a remote tropical getaway, but for these lucky creatures, it's home sweet home.
O-fin-sive Fishing Practices
Between 1986 and 2000, the worldwide shark population decreased by a staggering 89 percent, due in large part to the barbaric practice of shark finning: slicing off the fins and dropping the shark back in the water to die. The purpose? Traditional Asian remedies, souvenirs, and shark fin soup. The shows at Coral World's Shark Shallows help educate people about the vital role this apex predator plays in the marine ecosystem.
Please make your way to the entrance of Coral World, located adjacent to Coki Beach on Coki Point at your convenience. Tour does not include transportation to/from the park.
Scheduled Feeding & Presentation throughout the day. Other add-on activities include Sea Lion Swim, Sea Lion Encounter, Shark Encounter, Turtle Encounter, Sea Trek and SNUBA.
Bring money for photos, shopping and refreshments. A park map is provided to help you navigate through the park.
Over 1 mile of walking is involved to view the facility. Eighty percent of the park is wheelchair accessible, except for the lower levels of the Tower and the Nature Trail.
