Donsol & Ticao
Two hours away from Legaspi airport sits Donsol. A little town that till 1997 was not even known by most filipinos. The discovery that Whalesharks are yearly visitors to these waters changed all that. Now donsol is known worldwide for being the first place in the world to go if you want an almost assured Whaleshark encounter.
Another 2 hour boat transfer brings you to Ticao Island and just east is the Manta Bowl a feeding and cleaning station for large oceanic mantas.
All in all Donsol and Ticao is the ultimate Philippine Big-Fish adventure. Try it now with Donsol Eco Tours
