Cebu Ocean Park to reopen after over six-month temporary closure

After being closed to guests since April, Cebu Ocean Park is set to resume operations on Thursday, November 5th. “We are thrilled to welcome our guests back,” said Hitesh Sampat, General Manager of Cebu Ocean Park.

Guests will have the opportunity to once again experience the wonders of wildlife with their families, stroll amongst diverse habitats, take part in fun, educational activities and visit the Park’s newest residents: baby bearded dragons, and moray eels, all of whom were born during the lockdown.

Guests are also encouraged to stay connected online by tuning into the park’s weekly Facebook Livestream, which comes with a fun quiz for viewers to test their knowledge.

“At Cebu Ocean Park, we provide a safe and educational experience made for all ages, where they can learn about the magic of animal life,” said Andrea Bruno, Cebu Ocean Park Operations Manager. “It might feel different from past visits but I‘m confident that our Cebu Ocean Park family – guests, staff – will help us make ‘different’ feel awesome.”

Cebu Ocean Park will limit visitor capacity and implement health and safety measures recommended by state and local officials to provide a safe environment for humans and animals alike.

The Park’s safety measures include:

1.      Mandatory safe distancing measures

2.      Contact Tracing Application: mandatory check-in and out of guests

3.      Temperature screenings

4.      Increasing the number of sanitizing stations

5.      Maintaining robust cleaning routines

6.      Mandatory face masks for staff and guests alike

The Park will open weekly from Thursday to Sunday: 9 AM -6 PM. For entrance rates, refer to their website
