Whale Shark Interactions

The whale sharks in Donsol are protected. Only snorkeling is allowed in Donsol Bay, although it is possible to dive with them in nearby areas. However, the best and most reliable interactions are in Donsol Bay, where the whale sharks come right up to the surface.

Whale shark Donsol

During whale shark interactions, you will go out on a small boat with a guide and a spotter. The local fishermen have been retrained as guides and spotters and will find you whale sharks - no problem! As soon as they see a whale shark, you ready yourself with mask, snorkel and fins, while the boat positions itself so you have time to jump in the water before the shark reaches you. And then you swim alongside these gentle giants....

Diving is also available at other places nearby including Manta Bowl, where you will have a good chance of seeing whale sharks on scuba along with other pelagics.
