We are happy to say that the whale shark interaction is well regulated - a good example of eco-tourism that works. Disturbance to these gentle giants is minimized and the local people benefit from tourism. They no longer fish for whale sharks and they are now a protected species in the Philippines. Diving and flash photography is not allowed.
When a whale shark is spotted the boat is placed ahead of the shark. Snorkelers may only enter the water when advised to do so by the Marine Park Ranger. The visibility is average due to the large quantities of plankton in the water. However, when a 40ft shark swims a few feet in front of you - you are not going to miss it!!
From February to June an average of 15 sharks are spotted per day. We start each day after breakfast and head out for a morning's excitement. Back to the resort for lunch and then out again in the afternoon.
We can also offer an optional day of diving to the Manta Bowl at Ticao Island - on a group basis (all six people diving). Let us know if you'd like this option.
Whale Sharks are one of the BIG FIVE - the biggest marine animals that everyone wants to see. Manta, Great White, Hammerhead and Thresher. Book today and tick the BIGGEST and the BEST of that list!
