Our Ocean Adventure in 2010

This is a post I originally wrote in 2010.

Here’s one of two videos taken from our guided park tour inside the Ocean Adventure (Subic, Olongapo) as part of our school field trip last Feb. 4.

The show held at the Nautilus Theater, features Simba, the popular sea lion member of the Sea Lion Marine Patrol team that teaches kids and adults about the value of 3Rs – reuse, reduce and recycle.

Plastic containers thrown in the sea pollute the water and kill cute sea creatures like Simba.

We were amazed at how Simba was trained to do such tricks to the audience delight and entertainment. With Simba is co-actor Kuya Randy (the big fellow).

Watch the video now. Pardon the poor quality of sound.

Field trip


Every other year, the kids’ school conducts field trip. The school ensures that every destination is worth the time and contributes to the learning experience of students. The school has already set for February the date for the next field trip. What I like about field trips is that they motivate students to explore and learn new things beyond the classroom. If the school plans to include a guitar-making factory in its itinerary, I hope the kids would be able to learn not just the different guitars like epiphone les paul special ii, but experience for themselves how each piece is crafted. It would be one exciting school field trip for the kids.

I wrote in my other blog about my children’s field trip next month (January 2011).

For my gradeschooler, he will love to see the following tourist spots in Cavite:

  • Aguinaldo Shrine Museum
  • Tagaytay Picnic Grove
  • Tagaytay Paradizoo
  • Tagaytay Rolling Tour at Famous Taal Volcano
  • Some activities (found in the Picnic Grove area) that are not included in the package are zipline, cable car, and horseback riding.

For my high school student, she will definitely enjoy the following activities while in Villa Escudero in Quezon:

  • Villa Escudero Waterfalls Adventure
  • Carabao Cart Rides and Tour
  • Experience Culture and Arts
  • Visit the Museum
  • Bird Watching, Fishing, Swimming, Mountain Biking, Obstacle Course, Hiking
  • Bamboo Rafting
  • Experience meals at the waterfalls

The kids will have a blast!
