    What to Expect
    The bountiful coral island of Pamilacan is part of the Bohol Marine Triangle. This marine sanctuary is home to more than 11 species of dolphins and whales and you get to witness first-hand the majesty of Bryde whales, sperm whales, pilot whales and even blue whales.

    The Bohol Sea is said to be one of the breeding grounds of these social animals. Sightseers are likely to find dolphins in their play area at the southern coast of the Island jumping out of the water and doing somersaults in groups of three or more. 

    Whether you plan on seeing the Spanish fort or diving in the gorgeous sites, Pamilacan has a lot to offer. While you’re staying in Bohol, make sure to check out the Pamilacan Island Dolphin and Whale Watching Tour! 

    From baluarte port (Baclayon), tourists can ride a boat (briggs/canter) in going to the island. It is 45 mins – 1 hour boat ride from the port. 

    Your day will begin with a pickup from your hotel in either Tagbilaran City or Panglao Island. From here, you will be taken to board the motorized outrigger boat that will take you on an early morning trip to the sea waters of Bohol to Pamilacan Island for Dolphin and Whale spotting. Afterwards, we will take on a leisurely visit to the island for a taste of small island life. Most islanders on Pamilacan are fishermen. They also make their livings from raising livestock or leading dolphin watching expeditions in the Bohol Sea. You can relax on the island or you can choose to enjoy some snorkeling, with equipment included. Feast on lunch in a local restaurant before returning to your hotel.
