Seven Seas Waterpark, A Proudly Kagay-anon Family And Barkada Getaway

As some us may remember, one of the most famous and unforgettable attractions Cagayan de Oro City had during the late 90s was the old Wet Adventure waterpark. Located along National Highway, just right where Savemore Kauswagan is situated right now.

Due to its unique nature, many became a fan of the waterpark. Aside from the fact that it’s accessible and rare in city centers, it houses amusement pools with exciting slides. Families all around the city loved the establishment and it became one of CdeO’s favorite weekend getaway from the stressful urban life.

Its sudden closure after a few years of operation may have broke our hearts, but there’s no need to worry, we can now bond with our friends and family in a more advanced, much larger and nerve-wrecking Seven Seas Waterpark.

Officially sailing its ship on December 17, 2017, Seven Seas Waterpark has brought us back to our childhood memories and reignited our childish souls with the innocent joy brought by the twist and turns of its amazing water rides.

The Seven Seas Waterpark experience is a breathtaking voyage and no matter how crazy the waves get, the adrenaline rush always leaves us wanting more.

Seven Seas Waterpark is located at Brgy Barra, Opol, Cagayan de Oro City.

How to get there?

For mobiles: From the city proper, drive straight to Bulua Terminal and make a left turn on the Opol-Bulua Diversion Road, drive along the road and you’ll eventually locate Seven Seas Waterpark Entrance to your right.

Grab a Grab Taxi: No ride? This is where the Grab App becomes handy. Book a trip with Grab. The cost would depend on your pick up point plus the booking fee. Grab will also be useful if you don’t have a ride when going home.

Taxi:You can always ask a ride from Manong Driver, but to get a cheaper fare, lessen the distance between you and the Seven Seas Waterpark with available PUV’s traveling to Bulua Terminal.

Buccaneer Bay Historical-Fictional Background

In case you have missed the story, the shipwreck located at Buccaneer Bay was a resemblance to the ship owned by the Dutch Voyagers led by Captain Oliver. Being a Pirate, Captain Oliver tried to invade Mindanao but was conquered by the Spaniards.

During the battle between the Spaniards and Captain Oliver’s voyagers, their ship sunk into the Macajalar Bay.
