Dolphin Watching in Pamilacan Island, Bohol

Jul 25, 2010 No Comments by

After the countryside tour of Bohol, you can also try island hopping and enjoy more surprises. Pamilacan Island is a marine sanctuary and home to many biodiversity. You need to leave at 5:30 in the morning to enjoy the sunrise and catch the dolphins as they usually come out and frolic in the surface at this time of the day.

Go watch whales and dolphins in the Bohol Sea with the locals of Pamilacan. Ex-whale-hunting boats called canter have been refitted specifically for a safe and comfortable trip. The boats, measuring 15 to 20 meters in length, can accommodate up to seven passengers. Each of these crafts is furnished with seats and roofing, and equipped with life vests. You will be accompanied by skilled spotters whose familiarity with the area also makes them excellent guides. The best season is the months from March to June, but resident dolphins and small whales can be found all year round. Tours are dependent on weather and sea conditions.

What to Bring?

Wear light clothing preferably with a bathing suit underneath, soft-soled flat shoes or slippers, sunglasses, sun hat and sun jacket. Expect a rough ride and expect to get wet! So bring extra clothes, a towel and take motion sickness pills. Others important things to bring include binoculars, camera and film, skin lotion, snorkeling equipment.
