Misamis Oriental Aquamarine Park

The Misamis Oriental Aquamarine Park or MOAP has been visited because of its widely known dolphin island watching. MOAP has been a sanctuary for dolphins that has been brought to their shelter. As years goes by, MOAP treated injured dolphins. They already have taken care several numbers of dolphin. They too allow guests to swim with the dolphin, feed them and of course the picture taking. (How to go to MOAP?)

The Dolphin Island

The MOAP's dolphin island is a private island built to shelter dolphins. Its is naturally a little white island and then built with structures around it enough for the dolphins to swim around together with their cottages and their restaurant.

With the cutie dolphins :)

Aside from the dolphin watching at dolphin island, MOAP also cater snorkeling around the dolphin island. You can see a wide variety of colorful fishes, corals, starfish, clams and other water creatures in their little lagoon.

MOAP also has this park or little zoo  around a swamp. What's unique about this zoo is, the cages of the animals are put around a swampy area since it is a mangrove area at the port going to the dolphin island.

Picture Time butt much hmpf

Me and my friends tried snorkeling (my first time). :) its a little bit scary cause I don't swim in water that i know is really deep, not to mention it is a salt water. But having friends who were eager to see them going to snorkel, I guess I have to go too and it was all worth it. And we return home happy faces and DARKER.

Welcome to my travel blog

Hello all! Hello Philippines!

I welcome you to my travel blog that showcases my trips, climbs and food trips. I am from Iligan City and to start with, I would like you guys to learn more about my City.

Iligan City also known as "The City of Waterfalls" sleeps in the midst of Northern Mindanao along the shores of Iligan Bay. It was named as such because of the presence of more than 20 waterfalls.  Iligan City along with nearby cities and provinces is powered by the pride of the city's Ma. Cristina Falls.

Another waterfall pride of the city is Tinago Falls which lies in Buruun, Iligan City. Unlike Ma. Cristina Falls, the Tinago Falls allows tourists to dive in and camp for hours and dwells the coldness and freshness of the water.

With the abundance of water around the city, Iligan City presents the Timoga Cold Springs that has more than 5 spring resorts with flowing water and good amenities.

The recent development in the city tourism is the development of zipline adventures located in Nature's Park Ma. Cristina and Iligan Paradise Resort & Eco Park, Mimbalot, Iligan City.

Wanna go climbing? Visit Mt. Agad-agad in Pugaan, Iligan City. Mt. Agad agad is a climbing practice ground for climbers that could be traveled in 2 hours to reach the peak. It is the highest peak in the vicinity yet it is the nearest peak and a good spot to view the city wide scene from above.

Iligan City is more to offer and to view other leisures and the city facts just visit the official website
