Hi! Three of us are thinking to visit Donsol for Whale Shark from 12/26 to 12/30. Is the tour available? How can we book the tour?
Hi! The best time to go whale shark watching is during the months of March-May when you can be assured of at least one or two sightings. The local government of Donsol takes care of the bookings. Upon arrival at Donsol, ask to be directed to the Visitor's area so you can register there.
we made arrangements via siama hotel
We booked with Eco tours, or you can register on the day. It is fairly straight forward. Be there for 8 o’clock to register.
March - April is the best time to see the whale sharks.
I did all of our bookings through Donsal Eco Tours. They were great, arranged everything for us.
You may book your itinerary with the resort you are staying at. AGM resort can even pay the fees ahead and they will just charge it to your bill. They can arrange all the things you want to do in Donsol like firefly and manta watching.
I believe it is available all year round. You can book with various dive centres around Donsol, immediately opposite the entrance to the attraction. We went with Ecotours, you could look them up on the Internet. They were brilliant during our two week visit to the Philippines. They arranged all bookings, accommodation and transfers for the whole trip. So my advice would be to try Ecotours first. I hope this helps... it is a fantastic experience, well worth doing. Good luck
