OCEAN PARK SUBIC: the Dolphin Show, the High Dive and the sea lion

......thought of trying some establishments in Clark the other Saturday since it's the only interesting place I can think of in Pampanga, well, not quite coz I realized there's not much to see or do in this former Navy base aside from a lunch out in Fontana perhaps which I didn't feel like doing.

Come on, it's summer. I have to drag myself to the beach or anything close to it. Time to get some tan----as if di pako mukhang Ita.lol

We got as far as Subic. Destination Ocean adventure.

OCEAN PARK SUBIC

For 500 php entrance fee, you could already watch 4 shows. First in our list was the HIGH DIVE which features professional divers from other countries. Yes, I was surprised that they employ Caucasians. Gives you an International feel. They are good.World class diving talaga.

They were also funny. But the final act was indeed heart stopping. One of the divers climbed as high as
85 feet in the air. Took courage to look at him as he drop. If you fancy on taking photos afterward it's okay, they really know how to interact with their audience.Next stop was Walk on the Wild Side, an animal show, this time featuring wildlife of the forest. Being promdi and having played with wild animals in the prairie, I was not excited at all. 

I thought the DOLPHIN SHOW was really good. Far better than what we saw in Sentosa. Unlike in Singapore Ocean Adventure has a covered amphitheater which allows uninterrupted view and a comfortable shed against the sun. And the dolphins here are far talented.lol The show opened with the playing of some local drummers which gives it a cultural flavor.  The host, who happens to be a Caucasian was very lively.

One thing I like about it was the part when the trainers themselves got in the water and started making tricks with the dolphins. Great show.

How I wish I could be tossed like that by dolphins. hehe  
This presentation is packed with action, smiles, interesting information, and an important conservation message.I anticipated that the 4th and last show will be boring, as it features only one sea lion. But I was wrong, it was equally entertaining.

All in all it was all worth it. And if you can't have enough, there are lotsa OCEAN themed stuffed toys that you can buy in their Gift Shop. Oh, and they also have a Discovery Aquarium just in case you have time in between shows.

One more thing, if you are planing to commute to get here, forget it. It's deep inside SBMA so better find somebody who has a car. Cheers~~

Thanks so much to our friend Sebastian for the free ride from Pampanga to Subic and back.And for taking the lovely photos with his camera (some of which I tokk) --and for itroducing NIKON to me. I became restless ever since until I got my hand on my own Nikon dslr. cheers!!!!!

  47. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding
    know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  49. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with
    hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.

    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  51. What would it feel like riding on those dolphins and getting tossed like that. 500php for 4 shows? Its not that bad I guess, maybe the rates dropped today. ocean adventure park looks more action packed than manila ocean park. Haven't visited both ocean parks but soon I will. Cheers~
