I loved it too (I did the sea lion swim as well, and it was surprisingly affordable compared to dolphin excursions in other ports). I was with younger kids (3 and 6) who had a great time. If your 12-year-old is into aquatic life, he should like it. If he's not, he might find it corny.Question- did you book through the cruise ship or on your own. We are thinking of doing the sea lion swim at coral world,but it isn't listed on the excursion list. We were also thinking about going to Magen's beach afterwards. Any advice?

Megan's Bay is really my least favorite beach in St Thomas. The snorkeling is not good at all. The restrooms are better maintained and have always been clean when we have gone. The food and drinks are horribly expensive. There is also a entrance fee.
Question- did you book through the cruise ship or on your own. We are thinking of doing the sea lion swim at coral world,but it isn't listed on the excursion list. We were also thinking about going to Magen's beach afterwards. Any advice?I booked it on my own. You don't have to book Coral World in advance - you can just show up. For the sea lion swim, you make a reservation in advance, but you don't have to pay till you get there. IMO, it's totally worth it!
Here's a video of our trip in December, not a cruise, but we stayed at the Wyndham. Majority was taken at Coral World and Coki Beach. Including some shots of us feeding the stingray! Enjoy!
