South Luzon - Donsol | Snorkeling with the Whale Sharks


The giants of the sea!!!!!


Mayon, the active volcano!



Donsol is a place on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It is an hour drive from Sorsogon and Legazpi City. Together with the towns of Pilar, Castilla and Magallanes in Donsol provides the experience of swimming with whale sharks.


We call this species Butanding. In no other place on earth this special event will be offered, because the whale is nowhere else to keep as close to the coast. But here every day many animals come so close to the coast that you can experience it directly.


Donsol Whale Shark can now call the capital of the world, as many astonished tourists come specifically to bring this experience. The whale shark is seen as the biggest fish in the ocean and comes especially from October to before the end of May in the area.


He was recognized by the silvery spots on the back. Unlike other species of sharks is the whale shark feeds on krill and plankton. Swimming with the peaceful sea creatures is an experience par excellence, like the dolphin swim. Alone browsing the Animals has become a sport, sometimes entire schools of animals coming into the bay to get plenty to eat here.
