    Good experience
    The place is good specially for kids. The part where you can see jellyfish in an aquarium is really mind blowing and relaxing. Me and my family also enjoyed the show of the sea lions and birds. Please work on your penguins area. It is fun to watch them outside but the smell is not well maintained.

    Not what it used to be
    We visited Ocean park back in 2018 and there was a Bird Avery, a Fish Spa and a barn yard area these days are none of those things. Even the things that are available are not up to standard. The 'toy exhibition' only has a collection of superman toys. The penguin's glass fogs up so you can barely see them. The bird and sea lion show were the highlight however the arena itself is too hot in the heat of the day and leaks in you in a sudden heavy down pour. Honestly the price hasn't changed much since 2018 but I feel like it is now too expensive for the little that is included these days.

    Very nice ocean park
    This ocean park was a good value at around $12 US to enter, which included the shows. There were many kinds of fish and animals there to see. We particularly liked the bird and sea lion shows, which were well done and scheduled back-to-back. The trainers were very energetic and enthusiastic. The jellyfish room is very cool. There were many grammar-school field trip groups coming through, and the kids were excited and in awe of the sea life. It adds a good energy to ocean park. The facility is starting to show its age and is a little rough around the edges. It could use some TLC and maintenance, but nothing major. There is no lack of opportunities to buy toys and souvenirs. The people who were hawking a "free" massage were somewhat forward, but in a friendly way. Overall I would recommend the Manila Ocean Park as a great place to spend a few hours and see some cool stuff!

Very amazing activity and must to do in Manila, good for adults with no kids too, 680 php in advance payment and 720 php in the day of visiting, 700 php each extra to take pictures with sea loin and penguins. Sea lion was nice experience, staffs were nice ce and attentive there, also bird show should be better, but the man photographer inside the penguin area should be more nice and take time for visitors who pay extra same the whole entrance price to see penguins.

The place was sad , a lot of the fish tanks had fish suffering from depression , the employees wanted to be somewhere else, not there for sure . Boring and not really worth your time.

It was our first time go there. It was exciting and cool. With the promo price, it is what is. Maybe Manila Ocean Park will renovate or enhance some of their facilities. Some employees are boring and MASUNGIT!!!!

Absolutely awful way too many people and loud as hell. You couldn’t enjoy any of the animals or fish just people and noises. If you want to torture yourself make a trip

My daughter had a great fun inside Manila Ocean Park.Superman collection,turtles,snakes ,jellyfish.We took LRT from FPJ station to United Stations Ave.We asked tricycle there yellow body number 150 pesos.I decided to checked on my Grab apps which is 106 pesos.But my mother who is senior citizen was offered by one tricycle driver 50 pesos for 3 passengers.My mother clearly asked many times to the driver how much 50 pesos then.Then the driver drove us to the Manila Ocean Park then suddenly he asked us for 250 pesos.Beware especially tourist this kind of Scam.

Attention Manila City Hall: checked the tricycle driver there UNITED NATIONS AVE. Abusing and scamming people going to Manila Ocean Park.They are ruining the name and people of Manila

LTO: Taxi outside the Manila Ocean Park are contracting ride .Check there also abusing Customers

TIPS: Better ride Grab-they are honest and helpful people

Not as nice as it used to be. The stereo of the shows are broken. It's too loud and you don't understand what they are saying. The sun during summer is too hot for the show and they don't allow umbrellas near the sea lion. Some are attractions were closed. Overall it's almost not worth the money. Only the fish aquarium area and creepy crawlers were nice. Still feels it isn't worth the money spent
