Located in Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Ocean Adventure is Southeast Asia’s first open-water ocean park, providing a series of marine attractions and shows.

Zoobic Safari Adventure Park
Spread across 25 hectares in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Zoobic Safari Adventure Park is a large attraction that features an array of exotic animals. At the center, Zoobic Park is a two-hectare forest where guests can trek to see animals in their "natural" habitat. Other areas include a Serpentarium, Rodent World and Bird Walk, which specialize in certain species, while a museum contains bone collections and other exhibits. The main attractions however, focus on the park's more dangerous inhabitants; the Tiger Safari allows guests to take a jeep ride through a big cat enclosure, while Croco Loco offers the opportunity to feed the crocodiles.
Pamulaklakin Nature Park
In the jungles just outside Subic Bay, visitors can discover a completely different world. In stark contrast with modern Subic Bay, Pamulaklakin Nature Park is a glorious wilderness of unspoilt rainforest which is home to the Aetas people. This indigenous tribe is native to this part of Luzon Island and still practice a traditional rural existence. Guests can learn all about this warm and friendly community, who are happy to teach visitors about their culture and share their skills, including survival tactics and cooking techniques. Guests can choose to trek through the hills with a native Aetas guide and even camp overnight, enjoying the warm hospitality.
One of Subic Bay's newest attractions, Inflatable Island opened in 2017 to become Southeast Asia's biggest floating playground. Covering an area the size of eight basketball courts, the park is essentially a big inflatable assault course that floats on the calm sea. Guests can jump, climb, slip and slide across a variety of fun sections with names like Wobbly Bridge, Slippery Slope, Happy Swing, Jumping Pillow, Giant Tarzan Swing and even the Human Launcher, safe in the knowledge that they will land in the warm water. Guests seeking a more relaxing experience can simply unwind in the Balinese-style beach club, which features beanbags and parasols.
Diving and snorkeling
With warm, clear seas and a series of offshore reefs and wrecks, Subic Bay is an excellent destination for diving. A collection of colorful coral reefs are easily accessible from the shore, making them suitable for snorkeling, but the most impressive underwater attractions can be discovered further offshore. Two 19th Century shipwrecks, sunk by the Spanish in an effort to prevent the US Navy from entering Subic Bay, teem with life. In fact, it is believed that more than 20 wrecks from the Spanish-American War and World War II are sunk around Subic Bay, making the area a treasure trove of underwater exploration. Two dive shops operate in the area.
