Morion's PhotoTravel Diaries| Manila Ocean Park

This family day was planned months ago. Since I am coming from Cebu that day, Wifey and daughter waited for my arrival at the airport for almost an hour.  From NAIA 2 we headed to Manila Ocean Park as early as 8:30 am not knowing that the oceanarium’s opening is at 9:00 am. Thanks to the food stalls located before the entrance and 30 minutes waiting time I still have the moment to eat breakfast.


Manila Ocean Park is located behind the Quirino Grand Stand, in front of Rizal Park Monument. The country’s first state of the art oceanarium opened its door to the public last year and said to be much larger than Sentosa Underworld of Singapore (I've already visited on August 2010).


Entrance Fee is amounting to P400 for adults and P350 for children. Discounted tour packages are also available but we decided to visit only the oceanarium since our time is limited. 
The oceanarium was divided into different sections: The Agos Section, Bahura (Reef) Section, Laot (fishing ground), and  Ang Kalaliman(the Deep).






















Other attractions such as Penguin Exhibit, Fish SPA, Musical fountain show, and puppet show are also interesting. Unfortunately,we don’t have enough time to visit all  since we have an engagement at 1:00 pm.

Important Notice: Flash Photography is not allowed inside the oceanarium.

  1. It's wonderful. It's very, very cool. How I wish I could bring my family there to appreciate how under the sea animals, fishes, and other mammals live under the sea.

  8. Wow Ocean Park seems great! I've never been there but after seeing these awesome photos I probably will.

    My mom's a marine biologist and an ocean fanatic, so it'll be nice to bring her here.

  9. I've been here once, but it didn't seem all that big. Surprised to know it's bigger than the one in Sentosa (which I haven't been to). Still, I think it's good that we have something like this in the country. I would've wanted to try the Fish Spa, but it was almost closing time.

    Nice photos, btw. :)

  10. You've got really wonderful pictures here. And there weren't a lot of people! When we were there it was too crowded so any pic I took was ruined. In any case, it's a good pasyalan in the city for those who can afford it :)

  15. I've been there and it's really awesome to see the different kinds of water creatures! :)

  16. I've been there several times and every time I'm there, the water around me makes me feel cool even though it's actually hot. I'm not sure if I'm explaining it well. Hehehe Then it's so sad coz whenever I see the fishes, especially the big ones, all I can think about is food!!! Hahaha

  23. I've been staying in Manila for more than 4 years but I still never had the chance to go inside the Oceanarium though I've been to Manila Ocean Park already. I wish someday I could go there. I shall start saving now. Haha.
