Dolphin Show of Ocean Adventure in Subic Bay, Zambales
The Discovery Aquarium features various fishes and crustaceans in aquariums including the loveable clown fish living near the anemone (a filter-feeding animalrelated to corals, jellyfish and hydra) popularized by the animated movie Nemo.
The Sea Lion show features a sea lion choreographed to synchronize with music and boasts of an interactive audience participation
The Dolphins and Whales Show showcases two false killer whales and two dolphins obeying commands of the trainers obviously with the poor creatures being rewarded with fish food for their obedience.
The dolphin interaction part allows spectators to actually commune with the intelligent creatures (for a fee of course) even allowing close-up pictures.
Backpacking Subic Bay and Ocean Adventure:
How to get to Ocean Adventure, Subic Bay Zambales:
Commuting to Subic Bay is via Victory Liner, with terminals in Pasay City and Cubao, Quezon City has daily trips to Olongapo City.
Entrance to the facility is P450 and very near Camayan Beach Resort. The place is too humid with not much wind so suggest you come with bottled water, shades, caps and towels.
Driving Directions: in April 2008, try taking the new SCTEx for faster travel time from NLEx to Subic.
I recommend avoiding the pricey resort "Puting Bato" due to poor service in contrast to their high rating. The said resort should be re-evaluated by the DOT. It's because of their lamentable service that I wasn't able to go to Zoobic Safari :(
All pictures taken exactly one year ago using my then 2-day old Canon EOS 300D with standard 18-55 kit lens that I still don't know how to operate. I just used Sports mode and shoot away.

Cool! Love the pics. I've been to Subic numerous times cause I have a couple of friends residing there, but interestingly I've never been to Ocean Adventure. It'll be on the top of my list next I visit. :)

Seems like a really fun place to visit. The Sea Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland is the best I've seen to date.

Hello! Isn't it that ocean adventure was involved in the deaths of the fake killer whales? and that because of that they were temporarily closed down in 2005?
- At May 6, 2008, 9:23:00 PM, said...
hello! hindi ba na-close down temporarily itong ocean adveture dahil sa death of 3 fake killer dolphins? and that they were sued by PAWS because of that?
