A general admission ticket to the park grants access to all five acres of the facility, including outdoor pools, nearly two dozen aquarium exhibits, nature trails, and the Undersea Observatory Tower. Touch pools are also a highlight of most visits to the Coral World Ocean Park. Other interactive activities—such as cruising in a semi-submarine for views of the sea floor, snuba diving in the Caribbean Sea, or viewing endangered sea turtles alongside an expert instructor—are available for additional costs.

Travelers with extra time before or after a visit to the park can bring along a beach towel and spend some time on beautiful Coki Beach, located right next door. This white-sand beach is one of the best in the area for snorkeling thanks to the high concentration of tropical fish in the clear waters.
