Climb aboard this shared dolphin-watching excursion and see Bais City’s thriving marine wildlife and stunning sandbar just off the coast of Manjuyod shores. This trip is a must-book for animal-lovers and sandbar enthusiasts looking for a water adventure while on Negros Island.
You will be picked up by the van at anywhere from the city of Dumaguete and taken to either Canibol or Capiñahan wharf just in time for your departure. Once here, you will board a boat that will sail you across the sea towards the famous Manjuyod Sandbar. Manjuyod Sandbar stretches up to seven kilometers, making it one of the longest of its kind in the Philippines.
Just near the sandbar is the feeding ground for dolphins. So on your way to the sandbar, your guide will take you to a quick dolphin watching. You can see them playing in the water while jumping and doing acrobatic spins in the air. There are different species of dolphin found at Bais, some of which are the bottlenose dolphins, pantropical spotted dolphins, long-snouted spinner dolphins, and more.
From there, you will make your way to the sandbar. Once your boat docks on the ridge, you are free to roam around and enjoy yourself. You can spend time wading or swimming in the water; lie down on the sand, get a tan, and just relax. However, if you’re planning on snorkeling, watch out for sea lice as they inhabit the area and can give you nasty sting once touched.
You can also take refuge in the rented cottages dotting the area. These cottages look a lot like "The Maldives," and so dubbing the Manjuyod Sandbar as "The Maldives of the Philippines." If you prefer not to rent one, you can always chill out on the boat or sand.
