There are so many things that we can do and go to during summer breaks. You don’t have to be sunbathing at the beach or trying fried grasshoppers in Thailand. Sometimes, what we need is a quick turn to a local park to get our energy back up again.
Fishing is not a huge family bonding activity here in the Philippines, but there are a few folks who do enjoy fishing as a relaxing hobby. If you are wondering where to take your next fishing adventure here in Cebu, check out our list of fishing spots below.
AC Tilapia Fun Fishing & Family Park
Wanna try a new bonding activity with your family? You should try fishing. Fishing is a sport for those who want peace, focus, and are in need to develop patience. It also encourages teamwork among groups by encouraging one another to not give up.
You can teach young kids so many valuable lessons in fishing alone– that’s what makes the activity worth your time.
AC Tilapia Fun Fishing & Family Park is a fishing spot and a family park in one and can be a nice location to host events. The star of the attraction is the massive fish pond where you can fish Tilapias.
No budget? No problem! AC Tilapia offers very low fees for all. If you have no fishing tools, you can rent from the office.

dPond Family Fun Fishing
Another option for you is dPond Family Fun Fishing in Liloan. It is a fishing pond and more, because similar to Papa Kit’s, the establishment offers zipline, paddleboats (perfect for kids to enjoy), and wakeboarding (for the grown-ups to enjoy). They also have KTV for those who are not too adventurous, and of course, fishing. A restaurant is available where you can have your fish cooked fresh however you want! You only need to catch the fish for Bangus (299/kilo), Tilapia (259/kilo) and pay a small cooking fee of 99/kilo of fish.
Unplanned fishing may also go well because you can rent a fishing rod for only 20 pesos and get free bait to catch a fish. They say it’s almost impossible not to catch a single fish, you can even get a big one if you are lucky.
Cottages are available, too, and are affordable to rent at 500, 900, and 1,600 pesos, depending on the size and type of cottage.
Other activities are zipline (99/hr.), paddleboarding (200/hr., good for 2 persons), and wakeboarding which is NOT available as of writing. Feel free to ask them for more details at 424 1750. The staff will politely answer all your questions.

Who knew that you can fish in Crocolandia, a crocodile territory? If you enjoy fishing and have tools already, you might want to try fishing in Crocolandia, Talisay City. Aside from crocodiles, other wildlife animals that will greet you there are birds, snakes, more crocodiles, turtles, and a lot more. Kids will more likely enjoy Crocolandia as it is one of the go-to locations for school field trips.
The rate for fishing depends on the kind of fish you catch. Paku is 450/kilo, Tilapia is 150/kilo, and Hammerhead is 650 per piece. You can buy bait for 50 pesos (16 tiny meat slices) but you have to bring your own fishing rod because you cannot rent any here.
The main star, of course, is the crocs, which you can find easily. You can feed them, or pet them if you like (please don’t), or take photos of them.
There is an entrance fee of 100 pesos per adult and 50 per kid. If you need more photos, please check out their Facebook page. You can contact them from there as well because they reply pretty fast. Otherwise, you dial 0906 541 8380 on your mobile.
