  • Delightful, nt very much of a phyical encounter, but we were able to touch and get pushed by their legs. Quite strong.

  • So much fun the turtles were very friendly and the guides taught us lots about them. What's great is how these types of excursions help to pay for feeding and caring for these animals. Would recommend bringing your own towels.

  • My sister is the one who initially wanted to do this so I was like sure....I am so glad she did. It was amazing learning and getting to swim with the sea turtles and the juvenile sharks. It was so nice to know our guide was someone who went to school to work in the Marine field so it wasn't like it was someone the park hired and trained. You could sense the parks commitment to educating people on the marine and wildlife they have there. We both loved Duncan- the smaller sea turtle we swam with and Tortola--even though she was stand offish. I also appreciate the way they work to help the shark population, they work to get the young ones healthy while still maintaining there need to be put back out on the ocean. It was an experience I will never forget!!!! It is definitely and all ages activity and should be visited at least once if you are in St Thomas.

  • This was a really great experience. Highly recommend and would do it again!

  • Expert was very informative and patient. She answered all our questions and was always aware of what the sea turtles were doing to keep us safe. Well worth the experience. Coral world was much smaller then expected but we learned a lot while we were there.
