Cebu Ocean Park: The Largest Oceanarium in the Philippines

A unique underwater experience in the largest Oceanarium in the Philippines is coming to Queen City of the South! The Cebu Ocean Park will be another tourist attraction in Cebu for its residents and visitors.

Following the success of Manila Ocean Park, the organizers are building the Ocean Park in Cebu which will be located along SM Seaside City Cebu Complex, and near the Central Business District.

The project is currently under construction and once completed, this makes it an even more accessible destination especially to tourists from nearby regions to experience the excitement of being near the fishes and other sea creatures in giant aquariums. No need to head to Manila for this. ūüôā

Please take note that the information on the facilities and attractions may change without prior notice.
