Boracay Oceanarium highlights

The Boracay Oceanarium consists of 2 main sections: The Discovery Tunnel and the Ocean Bar. The former is basically a giant aquarium that houses an array of marine life, including sharks that you can watch in safety through a manmade fibreglass tunnel that runs below. The latter is a lounge and restaurant with aquarium pillars and displays.

Besides the interesting exhibits, our favourite part is definitely the mermaid show, which happens twice daily at 11am and 4pm. A couple of mermaids and a merman impresses with a variety of tricks in the tank, from simple twirls and flips to blowing kisses and throwing hearts to a mesmerised audience. You can also check out other exciting activities for an additional fee, such as the Aquarium Ocean Walk and Aquarium Scuba Diving.

It’s important to note, when you're planning to visit the Boracay Oceanarium, that there are 4 Crown Regency properties in Boracay. This is might cause some confusion. Make sure you head to the one located off the main road of Station 2.
