“Worth visiting”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Been there on Saturday. The entrance and aquarium were overcrowded because of lots of school groups (very noisy kids btw :). Maybe a weekday would be a better time to visit.

The aquarium is pretty ordinary, but anyway lovely to be there and observe this colourful fish family.

The sea lions show is a must. Such marvellous and joyful creatures, we couldn't resist and take some pictures with one of them. It really made our day and many days forward.

Don't miss the birds of prey section. I'm not a big fan of birds (actually not a fan at all), but when I could pet one of these gorgeous birds, I was truly glad that I didn't pass by.

Be careful buying tickets as they have lots of different packages. We asked for particular attractions at the ticket box and were assured that we got all of them in our ticket. In reality we received one which we didn't want and one was missed.

“Educational, World Class Attraction But Crowded”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Bought Metrodeal Vouchers for our trip. Saved about 60% of the ticket fees- awesome deal.

The park was crowded, expect it on a weekend so if you want to enjoy your trip fully, visit on a weekday. The Oceanarium was packed literally. Pros: our son had a great time identifying the fishes, shells etc. It was an opportunity for us to introduce new fishes and other marine animals he was seeing for the first time.

We didn't enjoy the All Star Bird Show that much because it was so hot. The bleachers were on direct sunlight. At that time also, there was a huge delegation of small children on a fieldrip. They had to brave the heat of the sun to get a glimpse of the birds on show.

The Dolphin show was staged an hour after the Bird Show so it was still searing hot about 3 in the afternoon. The dolphins and traniers were fun so it compensated the discomfort we felt with the weather.

The Musical Fountain Show was the highlight of our first day visit. Highly recommended.

Visiting the Jellies Exhibit was relaxing. The mood, lighting and music were perfect.

Trip to Antarctica was a bit disappointing. We didn't stay long because there were limited things to see.

Manila Ocean Park is a world class attraction. Must see for everyone at any age. Had a nice time seing the different sea creatures. The park houses good shop, snacks house and restaurants as well. They have clean toilets. Shuttle buses and taxi cabs are easily available.
