Nature Reserve Philippines, Philippines

Play with the Sharks in Donsol Donsol Whale Shark Interaction

Donsol is one of the few places in the world that can offer an almost assured whale shark sighting from November to June. The name Donsol has become synonymous to whale sharks as the world’s largest congregation of whale sharks are found here and the whale sharks stay in Donsol longer than any other place in the world. With simple snorkeling equipment, you will have the opportunity to swim alongside these gentle giants. Whale sharks are the largest fish in the ocean. In Donsol, typical whale shark size is 4-12 meters. The largest whale shark on record anywhere in the world was 12.65 meters long, but reported sightings are up to 18 meters. They weight up to 40 tons. Donsol is home to schools of these amazing creatures and they can be seen by divers and non-divers, swimmers and nonswimmers, the old and the young alike.
