Try something unique and magical for your next trip and book this 3-hour Donsol Whale Shark Interaction Tour. This sustainable Donsol whale shark tour package is perfect for nature-lovers who want to experience swimming with whale sharks while making the least environmental impact. Aside from Donsol whale watching, this tour offers the convenience of a tricycle transfer, a shared boat, snorkeling gear, and complimentary refreshments.

The town Donsol in Sorsogon is one of the few places in the world that ensures whale shark sightings from November to June. In fact, it is only in Donsol that you can find the world’s largest congregation of whale sharks. Thanks to the water temperature, current, and bountiful flow of plankton and krill in Donsol waters, these gentle giants stay here longer than in any other parts of the globe.  Additionally, Donsol observes sustainable ecotourism practices to ensure the welfare of the gentle creatures during the Donsol Sorsogon whale watching season.

Your Donsol whale shark tour will begin once you are picked up at your accommodation. You will be dropped off at the dock and board the shared boat. You will be provided with life vests and snorkeling gear. Take note that the whale sharks are not lured in with food, so you may have to wait for a while as your boat captain and spotter look for whale sharks. Enjoy the complimentary refreshments on board while waiting.

When a whale shark has been spotted, your guide will instruct you when and where to enter the water during the Sorsogon whale shark activity. Strap on your snorkeling gear and prepare to see these magnificent gentle giants in action. Marvel at their sheer beauty as you swim alongside them. Take out your camera and immortalize your experience with the whales.

Keep in mind that Donsol has guidelines every visitor must follow. You are not allowed to touch whale sharks, swim 3 meters away from the tail, and do not use flash photography. As a responsible traveler, be sure to follow these rules during a whale shark encounter in Sorsogon and do your part to protect and conserve this natural spectacle for the generations to come.

Swimming with majestic whale sharks surely is an adventure of a lifetime. Grab this Donsol whale shark watching opportunity for a memorable Sorsogon eco-adventure. Check availability by choosing a date.

DISCLAIMER: Seeing whale sharks during this tour is NOT GUARANTEED. Whale sharks are migratory animals, and even during the whale shark season, there is a possibility that you may not encounter one during your tour.
