Subic in the province of Zambales was the site of the largest U.S. naval and marine base in Asia until Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991 after which the Americans left. Of course, the Philippine Senate also elected to do away with the U.S. Military Bases Agreement which granted the U.S. use of, and jurisdiction over, Subic and Clark in Pampanga.
Subic is now managed by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority. The area has been developed into resorts while maintaining the natural vegetation as a wildlife sanctuary. One of its many attractions today is Ocean Adventure, a popular destination for schools’ educational trips. The whale show was very enjoyable.
