Enjoy the experience of a lifetime as you enter a pool with juvenile sharks and get up close to these magnificent creatures. A full-day ticket to Coral World Ocean Park on Saint Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands is included.
What to Expect
On the exhilarating Shark Encounter at the Coral World Ocean Park you can enter the world of these fascinating, magnificent, and misunderstood creatures. After your orientation session, a guide will take you to the Shark Shallows where you will have the opportunity to enter the pool with a variety of juvenile sharks that inhabit the waters of the Virgin Islands. Become a shark fan instead of a foe as you experience the thrill of viewing the sharks up close from above and below the water as they circle the pool.
Your general admission ticket will give you full-day entry to Coral World Ocean Park, where you can experience the beauty and magic of life under and above the Caribbean Sea. Here you can gaze into the ocean from 15 feet under in the Undersea Observatory, plunge through ocean gardens with Sea Trek, and sea tiny seahorses, giant lobsters, scorpion fish, and other fascinating sea life in the Marine Gardens. You can also swim with playful sea lions, hand-feed the sociable Rainbow Lorikeets, and encounter turtles, sharks, and stingrays.
A percentage of the proceeds for this activity are allocated towards shark conservation efforts.
