How To Get To Manila Ocean Park?

11:57 AM by Metro Manila Directions · 17 comments






The Manila Ocean Park is a state-of-the-art oceanarium (with a floor area of 8,000 sq. ft)  located at Manila Bay behind Quirino Grandstand. It is the first and largest aquarium facility in the Philippines. Once you are inside the park, you will witness a variety of marine creatures, such as sharks, fishes, and invertebrates indigenous to the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The park boasts of a 25-meter long underwater tunnel.





Manila Ocean Park is home to the following attractions:
1. Aquarium facilities: Agos (Flow), Bahura (Reef), Laot (Fishing Ground), Buhay na Karagatan (The Living Ocean), Ang Kalaliman (The Deep), Pagi (Stingray), Pating (Shark). This attraction features freshwater fishes, corals, a 220-degree walkway tunnel with big fishes and stingrays.
2. Activity Area: Shark Viewing Area, Fish Spa, Glass Bottom Boat Area, Aquanaut
3. Multimedia Facility for events such as weddings, birthday parties, etc.
4. Marine-Themed Mall and Sunset Quay Mall
5. Aquatica - a light and fountain show that focuses on the importance of taking care of marine life (see youtube below).
6. H20 Hotel - a ocean-themed hotel maintained by Manila Ocean Park.
7. Makasuntra Asian Food Village - a feast of Asian food culture!
8. Open Water Swimming Pool
9. Ozeano Restaurant - offering buffet and ala carte menus and operated by Tamayo's.
10. White Moon Bar - a hip wine and dine bar lounge overlooking Manila Bay

Ticket Prices
Admission price to the oceanarium is P400 for adults and P350 for children. Aquatica (show is at 7pm and 830pm on weekends) is pegged at P300. Aquatica can be bundled with the oceanarium at a package price of P500 for the 7pm show (highly recommended!). Fish Spa is offered at P120 for 20 minutes while Glass Bottom Boat Ride is P150. Aquanaut experience is P995. Swimming pool @ P200. Operating Hours: 10am to 830pm.

Manila Ocean Park is best for kids and adults who have the penchant towards sea creatures and marine life. The park gets crowded every Christmas and summer as tourists, not just in Metro Manila, but also from the provinces and abroad, flock the oceanarium to be one with the sea. The experience is worthwhile and the number of visitors do not necessarily hamper one's enjoyment. This is a must-see state-of-the-art facility, which is seldom found in the Philippines.

Directions on how to travel/commute to Manila Ocean Park:
There are no public means of transport that pass through Manila Ocean Park. As we advise that you walk through Rizal Park/Luneta, we highly encourage you to take the opportunity to do some leisure walking. You might also want to try riding the kalesa from Rizal Park to Manila Ocean Park.
