Dolphin & Whale Watching is an all year round activity in the Bohol Seas. The best season for this though are the months from March to June. Former whale-hunting boats called canters have been refitted specifically for a safe and comfortable tour. The boats, measuring 15 to 20 meters in length, can accommodate up to seven passengers. Each of these craft is furnished with seats and roofing, and equipped with life vests.
Our tour spotters which serve as your tour guide were former sea creature hunters who lived off on their catch of dolphins, Bryde whales, whale sharks and manta ray which breed on the pristine waters of this island. Although, jaws and bones of marine mammals and whale sharks still adorn a number of village homes, hunters have now abandoned their centuries-old hunting tradition to join the government’s thrust to protect Philippine marine treasures, become stewards of the sea and this Bohol tour attraction is now an alternative livelihood program for them.
A side trip to Pamilacan Island completes this adventure tour. The island, home to 235 local families today, served as a watch station against the intrusion of pirates and enemies of the Spanish colonizers, as evidenced by the 200-year-old Spanish fort on the northeast side of the island. Things to do here; take time out to explore the coastal village, enjoy lunch by the beach prepared by the locals, pick your own private spot to enjoy the unspoiled white sand beaches and cool crystal blue waters of this beautiful paradise.
