Spend a day with dolphins, whales and hopefully the rarely-coming whale shark as you explore one of the country's best known eco-tours.
An early morning boat trip on board a motorized outrigger boat brings you to the seawaters around Pamilacan Island, southeast of Tagbilaran City. The water around Pamilacan Island is home to at least six species of whales and dolphins. If you are lucky, pilot whales may be sighted between the months of February and August.
One interesting aspect of this tour is that the boat crew and "spotters" for this tour are former whale hunters. Now specially trained, they gave up their traditional livelihood in favor of preserving the environment.
Other activities during this tour include swimming and snorkeling around Pamilacan Island whose coral reef lies just off-shore. There will also be a village tour and picnic lunch. Snorkeling gear is available for rent at an additional cost for those who haven't brought their own.
