I had been there with my boyfriend. We had to kill some time in Manila until we traveled to Cebu. In my opinion there was nothing special to see at this Ocean park. I liked the fish spa, but this was all. It this okay to walk around in a mainly air-conditioned space, but I would rather go to a... More

Amazing place and nice to spend the day there with kids. A big problem to get a taxi when leaving though.. and most taxies want to scam the tourists. Was going to Robinson mall, wich only cost 60peso. But taxi wanted 1000 peso. So bevare, and let them know you know the prices.. And you can also report drivers by... More

I got the 3rd package which contains 11 activities by 750 pesos. I feel it is not organised. Many students queues makes the visit terrible. Yes there are nice things like Fish Spa, Jellish and Aquarium. Aquarium is the best. Other activities for kids like Bird show and Penguin Talkshow. It's more informative and funny.

Been there for the 9th time, the place looks old now, the management must consider some renovation. Lots of activities both for adult and children. The sea lion show and oceanarium are the highlights of the park. A getaway for weekend family bonding, kids will enjoy the different kinds of Marine life.

It is a nice place to spend some time when you are in manila but nothing special. Recommended with families with young children.

Visit this place if you want to experience the ocean without really having to go to an ocean! Entrance fee is around 500 to 600 php per person but they do have some promos and discounts depending on the season. They also have restaurants (I recommend Makan Makan) here as well as a hotel (Hotel H2O). This place is not... More

Nice place for the money. They had a few nice shows with the seals and various birds. Really enjoyed the exhibit with the fish where you put your feet in! Never experienced that before. Overall nice place.

Considering it's in Manila, the ocean part is actually quite good. I appreciated that virtually all fish on display are really local (from Philippines). I have major reservation against the fact that there are essentially no info tables - I know most of the fish (I'm a diver), but people w/o this knowledge just wonder around and take selfies. It's...

I had high expectations thinking that this attraction is related to the Ocean Park in Hongkong (not known to me if it really is or not) - because it bears the name. I had expected that there will be crowds because it was a weekend. I aso anticipated lots of walking. I have been to different aquariums/museums in Asia and... More

Went to the Ocean Park through a tour at the Sofitel. Pricing wasn't too bad- saw 5 exhibits in approx. 3 hours. The jellies were awesome- the fish spa was sweet- Antarctica (some penguins) was pretty bad- the sea lion show was wonderful- and Yexels museum was neat. The only issues were most of the gift shops don't take credit... More
