Fed a Penguin and Kissed a Sea Lion at Manila Ocean Park

It’s my third time at Manila Ocean Park and each time I visit there’s new experience and attractions to visit.

My last was one of the best especially with the VIP treatment given to me, thanks to for arranging everything and for Manila Ocean Park Irish and Mark for being our guide although out.

My favorite part was petting and feeding Penguins at the Trails of Antsrtica exhibit.   They have a bunch of Peruvian Penguins that can survive Philippine climate . Don’t worry they are set in an icy and cold aquarium home in the Ocean Park.

My second favorite part was the kiss from Vincent the Sea Lion, he is the only male sea lion at the Aquatica. I had a 10 second kiss on the cheek and hug with Vincent.  It was a very wet and sweet fishy kiss and hug.   You can do the same for extra fee.

The Sea Lion show at Aquaitca in the ocean park is also one of the best I have seen , they have two female sea lions performing Sandra and Icys.  I love their stunts and dance. Really well trained sea lions.  It’s a show you wouldn’t want to miss.

Marcus tried the fish spa , I am unsure if he enjoyed it or not but he was describing it as terrible and weird and fun at the same time.  I didn’t do it because I know I am ticklish. I would just go berserk when a big fish like the one biting him bit me. What more more than a dozen of them would.

You can see his reaction on this vlog of my Manila Ocean Park visit.


There was also a Christmas Village with a very tiny snow show for you to experience it yourself. Nice for photo ops.

We would have gone to the Birds of Prey Kingdom but they close early , around 430pm.  There was an Evening Symphony Show that we skipped coz we rather have dinner coz I was hungry.   Thank you for the scrumptious dinner provided by MakanMakan for us .  They serve delicious Filipino dishes.

If you would like to ecperience the same as I did, you may visit Manila Ocean Park , they are open everyday until 8pm.    Or visit to get ideas for fun getaways around Metro Manila and even out-of-town.

Stay gorgeous everyone!
