This is a great place to spend your weekend with your kids. There are different sections to go through. The Agos (Flow), Bahura (Reef), Laot (Fishing Ground), Buhay Na Karagatan (Living Ocean), Ang Kalaliman (The Deep) and Pating (Shark). I'm sure your kids will love seeing the colorful fishes in glass tanks, starfish, the spider crab(the largest living arthropod), sharks, stingrays and more.
The highlight is a walk through the tunnel that is nice enough but pretty short. How I wish it was longer than it is. Unfortunately, there are no live corals or seaweed, but all the tanks are very clean and the collection of fishes are good. You may enjoy having a fish foot spa where your feet will be nibbled by "doctor fish" which is proved to be therapeutic. You have to pay an extra amout of P120 for it. You may also try an experience in a Glass Bottom Boat Ride where you can view the fishes, stingrays and other creatures below it, but it is not that big. The boat guide will made it exciting though. There is also a souvenir shop where you can buy something as a remembrance.

MOP is accessible to Intramuros, Rizal Park, floating restaurant and casino and even at the SM Mall of Asia (huge mall in Asia).

Although MOP not as great compared to other Ocean Parks in other countries, I am proud that we have this in my homeland, Philippines. Overall very nice place if you are a having a family day out.

  10. Wow! That park sounds a perfect place to visit for the whole family. I hope I can have some chance to see it when I visit Philippines. Thanks for sharing this to us. :)


  11. Its amazing really when you first enter that transparent dome where you can see many kinds of sea creatures. I hope the government would always give this place regular maintenance, unlike Manila Zoo today.
