I did the "coral land and coral sea" tour. There was a 45 minute minisub around Coki point and then 1.5 hours at Coral World.

I wasn't too impressed with the minisub because there wasn't that much fish life around, altough Nicholas, the diver for the sub, was quite handsome (and young)....If you do this tour, remind him to take his cell phone out of his pocket before jumping in the water. He forgot to take it out and it was still in his pocket while feeding the fish for us.....

Coral World wasn't that impressive to me. I found it small. The underwater observatory was interesting, but the one level where there were more viewing areas was closed off for some reason. It could have been the heat that made it less enjoyable, it was around 41C (109F ish). There were parts that we couldn't get to, so taking pictures was tricky....

If you go, I hope it is back up at 100% again and that you have enjoy yourself.

If you are traveling with kid's it's great for them. An adult may not enjoy it as much.

It is an interesting place to visit. Kids would enjoy it, but as an adult, it is on the small size and with all the homework I did, I expected more. The iguanas wandering around are interesting, but not friendly! I wouldn't do it again--I'd go snorkling!

Coral World is a great place if you have kids, kids love the place, no need to do a tour ifyou just want to go to the exhibit and the beach,just grab a cab at the pier.

Okay, it's official. I'm just a big kid. I really enjoyed Coral World. The relative smallness made me take my time and look more closely at what I was seeing. Loved it.
