Last May 10, Seven Seas Waterpark and Resort, located in Barra, Opol, welcomed us CDO Bloggers in their place for our Summer General Membership Meeting 2019.
It is my first time to be in the waterpark though I heard about it A LOT since it opened from both social media and words of mouth from my friends. That is why I am so happy to join our GMM and also take part in the activities set for us in Seven Seas Waterpark.
We toured around the place before trying their major rides. They have 24 attractions. I have taken lots of pictures when I visited but because of some restrictions, I do not have complete photos but I will provide ideas as much as I can. These attractions are as follows:
Seven Seas features 3 Dutch shipwrecks: RJINSBURG, AMBOINA and BRUINVIS. The waterpark also tells a forgotten chapter of Philippine History and relives it through replica of these shipwrecks which can be traced back in Jakarta, Indonesia. That is why this place is also open for a field trip where students and teachers can revisit and discuss this particular part of the History.

Fuerte de San Agustin

Bigger pool especially for kids will be soon be open and Seven Seas Waterpark is also set to introduce their exciting night operations. These will surely attract more costumers, which prove further of it as one of the largest and most beautiful themed waterpark in the country. Cool, isn’t it? I am so inspired about how its CEO, Engr. Elpidio Paras and his team strategized its developments, saying, “We have to dream as everything starts with a dream.” Wow! Like who knows, they will build beautiful themed hotel same as Resorts World Sentosa, side by side Universal Studios Singapore? Personally, I am so excited what Seven Seas will reveal in the future.
