Whale Sharks in Donsol

Donsol in the north of the Philippines is a little known treasure in the diving community, but its fame is spreading rapidly as the city has done a magnificent job of promoting its eco-friendly tourism and its whale shark tours. Average sightings are 5-10 whale sharks in a day with reported sightings of up to a staggering forty five whale sharks in one day!  

Although Donsol Bay itself is snorkeling only, if you want to do whale shark diving, there are dive sites where you have an excellent chance of seeing whale sharks while scuba diving.
