An Aquarium In Mactan

I visited the Mactan Island Aquarium today. It is located in Baranggay Basak in Lapu-Lapu City. I’ve heard about this place a few months ago but I was a bit busy so I wasn’t able to check it out right away. Last week, the owner of the place left a comment here in MCPB telling me to check out the place and probably feature it here.

Mactan Island Aquarium is similar to Manila’s Ocean Park. It has fish tanks lined up in galleries. It also features different species of fish – both saltwater and freshwater. The place has real sharks, too! MIA is only occupying the basement. However, the space is big enough for dozens of fish tanks, a small restaurant, an art area for kids, and an open tank for the baby sharks.

Anyways, I’d like to apologize for the photos. Honestly, I took more than 120 photos, but only around 40 were useful. Shooting with flash is not allowed and the fishes moved real fast. Since the shutter speed of my camera is quite slow, my shots were either too dark or too blurry. Hehe.






A spider crab. This dude wasn’t moving at all. So the photo is a bit clear. Hehe.

To get to Mactan Island Aquarium, just drive straight (from the first bridge) until you see this sign.
