      About this Charlotte Amalie tour

      You won't find them eating pizza, running the sewers, or fighting crime, but our Green Sea Turtles are just as interesting as any of their teenage mutant brethren.

      Weighing in at around 150 pounds, these massive creatures are surprisingly graceful in the water for their size.

      Once you've gotten comfortable in the lagoon, our instructor will give you the nod and you can feel free to express your affection for your new friends – even give their shells a scrub. Coral World is proud to assist with the rescue and rehabilitation of these gentle giants of the sea. People frequently bring sea turtle hatchlings to staff members for protection, and we've also helped turtles that have been injured by boat propellers, human mistreatment, and other dangers that these animals face every day. A portion of your Turtle Encounter ticket goes to turtle conservation efforts, so thanks for helping preserve this endangered species for future generations.

      A long-awaited homecoming

      Female sea turtles will often swim thousands of miles to get back to their original birthplace and lay their eggs. Some species travel up to 10,000 miles, swimming the entire length of the Pacific from Asia to the U.S. Not being the fastest creatures in the sea, it's a marathon that can take as long as six months.
