Whale watching Philippines excursions give you the chance to discover the exciting marine animals of the Philippine Islands.
Over 7,000 islands make up the tropical paradise of the Philippines, where blue ocean meets white sand beaches. But below the surface, the waters surrounding the Philippine islands are a playground for some of the sea’s most exciting marine animals. The sea is teeming with whales and dolphins gliding effortlessly through the waters. It truly is a magical sight to see the marine mammals in person.
On seeing whales in person, Ker & Downey Product Manager says,
“There is a sense of awe being in these presence of these gentle giants. You are but a miniscule being next to their grand underwater bodies, only a fraction of which usually break the water’s surface…You are but a visitor in their home, a spectator in their playground…”
Pamilacan Island and Balicasag Island lie in the middle of the Bohol Sea, an area particularly attractive for dolphin and whale activity in the Philippines. There, you can find dolphin species like Risso’s dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins, and spotted dolphins, and whale species like melon-headed whales, dwarf sperm whales, short-finned pilot whales, and Bryde’s whales. While blue whale sightings are rare in the Philippines, it’s still possible to see them, and your best chance is in the Bohol Sea.
When on whale watching Philippines excursions, it’s possible to spend long spans of time simply scanning the water for signs of their presence. Every little wave or disturbance ignites a small spark of hope that they have arrived. But patience (and a knowledgeable whale watching guide) pay off when, all of a sudden, a puff of water erupts like a geyser. It’s an experience that will stick with you forever.
While whale sightings cannot be guaranteed on whale watching Philippines excursions, traveling with a reputable company greatly improves your chances. Ker & Downey works with reputable companies who make every effort for a successful whale watching Philippines excursion.
