Manila Ocean Park Entrance Fee, Promos, Attractions, Directions

Manila Ocean Park is a world-class Oceanarium located in the capital of the Philippines, Manila. It started its operation back in March 2008. Since then, it became one of the tourist attractions of the city. People from nearby cities and provinces go there mainly for amusement, and educational purposes.

Parents bring their kids to Manila Ocean Park for family bonding and also to introduce themselves to various marine life. Students go there to have an actual experience of sea animals they see in science books. Going to the theme park can help the students answer how big the shark is. Or what it’s like to be near them.

Manila Ocean Park offers opportunities for Kids and adults to have a close encounter with real-life sea lions during the sea lion show, or see an actual penguin at the “Trails of Antarctica” exhibit. The theme park also has different species of jellyfish that tourists can see. These transparent sea creatures reflect the light’s color in the aquarium.

The main attraction of Manila Ocean Park is its giant oceanarium. It is home to thousands of marine animals that are composed of hundreds of species. The oceanarium has a manmade underwater tunnel. Guests can walk to it so they can have a view of the sea animals swimming from above.

How to Go to Manila Ocean Park by LRT, Bus, or Jeep

The Oceanarium’s address is Manila Ocean Park Luneta Manila Philippines 1000. When you are near the Theme Park, the landmarks that you will see are Quirino Grandstand, The Manila Hotel, and Luneta park. Basically, the Manila Ocean park is just a stone’s throw away from the Grandstand.

Fortunately, there are many ways to get there. However, the only way to actually get to the theme park is by walking, riding a taxi, or by a private vehicle. There are no public transportations that pass by in front of it. So if you will travel with your kids, then it is better to ride a taxi or bring your own private transportation.
