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.
