ALBAY AND DONSOL WHALESHARK WATCHING
W/ MANILA TRANSFERS
The natural beauty of Donsol, relative to its strategic location, with open seas on the southwestern side and the presence of mountains, rolling hills and valleys, if properly developed, will open its frontiers to tourism industry. Provisions of physical development with regards to infrastructure and facilities will enhance the municipality's potential into one of Philippines' major tourist destination.
WHALESHARK (BUTANDING) WATCHING (SECOND QUARTER OF THE YEAR)
To welcome the return of the Butandings, which usually come in droves during this time of the year, and to officially signal the opening of another high adventure season of Butanding Interaction, the Butanding Arribada Festival is held every first week of March in Donsol town.
The peak Butanding Interaction season is March, April and May each year. This means, it is again open season for eager visitors or tourists to go Whale Shark/Butanding watching or, for the more intrepid and adventurous, who want to cavort with these biggest fishes in the world up close, swimming with the awesome, but gentle Butandings of Donsol.
A long fluvial procession just at the mouth of the long and winding Donsol River where a large pod of Butandings usually converge at this time of the year, highlights the festival.
RIVER CRUISING/FIREFLIES WATCHING (AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST)
Firefly watching at Ogod or Donsol River is a visual and spiritual way to experience nature. Hundreds of these nocturnal insects inhabit the two rivers and provide glow around the mangrove-associated stands along the banks.
Firefly watching is becoming an important nature-based tourism activity in Donsol. Only three countries in Asia, including the Philippines, offer this kind of firefly tour.
