A Moonlight Adventure with the Maiden of the Sea

Manila Ocean Park’s newest addition to its list of attractions, Acquatica is now open to public and its latest feature, “The Maiden of the Sea”.

Upon purchasing a P500 worth of ticket and a few hours of tour at the Oceanarium, we left the park at around 3pm and went back at 6:30 pm for the Maiden of the Sea. We were greeted by a line of excited groups, mostly with families and friends. I later realized it is an outdoor show. Having no clue of what to expect, I began imagining some cunning dolphin performances. At the entrance, we were given some disposable raincoats and were instructed to wear it during the show. Boy was I excited, there’s going to be some cool splashes after all!

Some few minutes before the show, we were surprise by a cluster of towering water fountains making its initial splash, giving us an obvious clue of what the raincoats are for. We hurriedly put those on!

And so the show begins with enchanting nature music, green shaft of lights and an impressive voice over. A group of young performers entered its way on the stage and started singing and dancing. Aha! A musical outdoor play! The story of The Maiden of the Sea is about a kingdom that has done harm to Mother Earth and was punished. Little kids will surely love the cast, aside from the "human" performers, what makes this show really appealing are the singing deep sea cartoon characters revealed brilliantly thru a 3D hologram with the help of some giant water screens. Well that speaks high-tech!

Watch this finale part of the Manila Ocean Park's Maiden of the Sea. You can view more scenes at youtube. It is a happy ending by the way!

After 30 minutes, we left our seats fortunately still dry. The pyro effects, the lights, the cute 3D characters, gigantic water fountains and the energy of the whole performance are all but amazing. I highly recommend Maiden of the Sea for families wanting to see a different kind of fun outdoor musical.   Hungry for food, we went back to the mall and had our dinner at the Makansutra.


  1. Wow, mukhang maganda yang show na yan ah. Will it run for long? I have visited manila ocean park several times already pero nung mga panahon na yun ay wala pa ang acquatica. sayang. i hope i can visit it again soon.

  2. Maganda yung show, palagi akong napapa-wow! :D I'm not sure til when mag last yung show. It was my first visit and nakita naming may promo tong Maiden of the Sea (+ P300 dapat pero additional P100 na lang with the Oceanarium tour). It is a great family experience :)

  3. The first time I saw a similar show was in Sentosa, Singapore. Buti naman meron na dito. I'll bring my kids with me.

  4. Your kids will surely love the show. I saw some videos of Songs of the Sea in Sentosa, youtube nga lang. :)

  5. Looks fun and interesting. Will watch the show with my pamangkins. Thanks for sharing.
