Donsol Diving Vacations


Donsol is located in the province of Sorsogon in the southwestern part of the Luzon in the Philippines.

Diving and swimming with a whaleshark is the epitome of wildlife encounters- an experience of a lifetime- a nature enthusiast or ecotour fanatic cannot afford to miss!

Such singular experience is offered in the waters off Sorsogon, particularly in the coastal areas of Donsol. Here you can interact with a butanding or even several- some 50 to 60 of them- at any one time.

Such phenomenon cannot be found in other parts of the country even in other parts of the world.

These gentle giants of the sea-considered the largest fish in the world, measuring from 15 ft to as long as 60 ft. in length-have been observed to congregate in the waters off Donsol starting sometime during the months of October and November, and in the peak months of February to May.

The butandings, featuring silvery polka dots all over its huge body, are harmless, gentle, friendly and playful, allowing humans to interact with them, as they swim alongside seacraft.
