April 2010- The best time to enjoy Manila Ocean Park’s Oceanarium is to come early. Get ahead of the line or you might want to consider buying ticket in advance (check out Manila Ocean Park website for group package discount). MOP also join online deals on group buying sites, these can save you a few bucks. Wear light and comfortable clothes where kids can move around despite the humid weather at the bayside. Bring mineral water or energy drink (like Gatorade) to quench thirst.
The Oceanarium is the first and largest aquarium facility in the Philippines, with a wide variety of species, such as sharks, fishes & invertebrates indigenous to the Philippines & Southeast Asia. It’s a 25-meter long underwater tunnel, surrounded by awesome creatures.

Visiting Manila Ocean Park on summer season was very challenging and exhausted. This was the time I carried tons of weight from the gadgets, child kits and stuff and even carrying the baby. With the stress I got from the Oceanarium walk, nothing can compare from a child’s smile — the adventures and encounters with the sea animal. Not to mention, dropping by Luneta Park and tryin’ hard to fly a giant kite after the MOP walkathon.
