Manila Ocean Park – Wonderful Encounter With the Fish Kind

Manila Ocean Park is the country’s first world-class marine-theme park. It is one of the chosen field-trip destinations of schools for its marine life education. It could easily found for it is located near the Rizal Park in Manila. There are offered packages for the whole family to enjoy.


My hubby’s birthday treat is a tour in the Oceanarium.  I was wishing we could watch the beautiful Musical Fountain Show at night but we will be having our dinner in Tagaytay City so we only chose this primary attraction to enjoy our short afternoon tour.

We’re a family who loves to swim and snorkel on a beach. And so our encounter with the underwater creatures tickled the adrenalin rush. Seeing those fishes for the first time was such a delightful feeling. My kids were fascinated looking at colorful aquatic species.

These are some of the pictures:






After the tour we stayed awhile on the tunnel, amazed to see more fishes and sting rays hovering freely on the water.


As well as the group of sharks.


After the tour we ate our lunch in Chowking and later bought souvenir items near the food stall.  We’re about to proceed to the parking lot but we were approached by a staff of Seriland Tricky Art Museum and was tempted to go inside and had our tricky photos with their amazing tricky real-life paintings for P99/per head.


As we strolled around we saw hotel, food stalls, shopping boutiques and another souvenir stores.

That ended our short afternoon tour hope we could go back and avail their affordable packages in the future.
