We travelled from Boracay via Kalibo and straight to Subic in one day! Oh my it was an all day trip… A van ride from Willys resort to the Jetty Port in Cagban, then a 20 minute Ferry to Caticlan, followed by a 1 hour or maybe more Bus Ride to Kalibo Airport. A van ride to eat lunch and back to the Airport, then a Victory Liner bus ride from the NAIA Terminal 3 was 4 hours to Subic Bay. By the time we got to our Subic Resort, it was time for dinner just to stay overnight to have an Ocean Adventure the next day and go back to Manila!
All of us was saying, that the Ocean Adventure better be worth it with all those travelling! Oh my, it was a Blast! Totally once in a lifetime experience to swim with a dolphin, literally! It was a the Dolphin who fetched me on the shore to the platfarm, I rode it!
They did a lot of tricks, like jump, spin and a lot more…spin with us that is… Cost is P4,500 (USD 100) if I recall it correctly. That’s per person. The fee includes watching all the shows but we really didn’t have time anymore. The experience was definitely worth it. The only think I didn’t like was the photos they took of us had to be purchased per shot. So we ended up paying something like P3,000 for all the photos saved on a CD.
Still had a flight to catch the next day, so we decided to look for a much faster way back to Manila, at first we were going to take a chopper but the resort is having renovations and it can not land, we were calling the airport for clearance but couldn’t reach them either. The resort we stayed at is just walking distance to the Ocean Adventure but it was far from the Shopping area where most restaurants are. So if you are staying a few days in Subic, it’s best to get a hotel closer to the conveniences and just drive to the Ocean Adventure park. The Manager of the Subic resort (sorry I couldn’t remember the name) was helpful and introduced to us the owner who let us know of a Subic Seaplane that could take us back to Manila in 30 minutes. We made the arrangement and was in Manila in time for lunch.
