Ocean Adventure: Souvenir Shop and Aquarium

Ocean Adventure has a souvenir shop that offers some cute furry creatures to take home. So if you’re fond of sea animals like dolphins or seals, this is the place to get one (fake ones of course). The smaller ones cost around 80-90 PHP while the gigantic Free Willies cost probably a thousand pesos.

Other souvenirs range from keychains, to bagtags, and mugs.

Located at the shoreline of Subic Bay, Ocean Adventure showcases some sea attractions and shows for both kids and adults. It’s mainly a sea park and NOT a theme park so don’t expect to see rides and roller coasters here like Ocean Park or Seaworld in the US. It’s a modest, small encampment, where animals are bred to entertain visitors.
