Butanding interaction!!!

A travel blog entry by setravels


Finally the day for our much awaited interaction with the Butanding - Whale sharks in Philippines - had arrived. We were to go for the 8AM - 11AM interaction tour, but by the time we reached the whale shark interaction center, it was already around 9:30 AM and so we had to wait for the boats to come back. We spent time till 11 am reading more about …

Swimming with the fishes

A travel blog entry by geoffloribryant


There is a very good reason to fly into Lagaspi; it goes by the name of Mayon mountain. It actually comes from the Philippine word for “beauty.” Honestly it is amazing. It basically comes from the ocean and looks exactly like a child’s science project. It stands 2462 meters tall and is glorious. We flew in amongst clouds and …

Philippines - Whale Sharking

A travel blog entry by garrywendy


We flew into Manila late on the 15th and spent the 16th there because our fight to Donsol left early on the 17th. Let's just say we found Manila scary. Maybe we are just a bit paranoid, but in less than 24 hrs we witnessed an argument on a street corner (not sure how it ended, we left ASAP), a taser was shoved in Garry's face for "purchase", and we …

The Pilar reunion

A travel blog entry by jaqz_and_dave


... from Pilar, and the remaining four of us had breakfast by the sea. This gave Jacqui a chance to indulge in another favourite pastime - collecting shells and sea-rounded glass. She had amassed quite a collection by the time our pancakes had arrived. Then we said our goodbyes to Sean and Mitsy before setting off towards the bus.
After a few minutes walking, a tricycle came past, and we loaded the bags onto the roof of the sidecar before jumping inside. ...

Searching for whale sharks

A travel blog entry by jaqz_and_dave


... still able to see the enormous creature between breaths. We swam alongside the giant fish as it wafted along, a "cleaner fish" alongside / beneath it. We also noticed many tiny stinging sensations while in the water, which Abe explained was krill.
Another two dips into the water yielded further sightings, including one where we ended up in front of the whale shark's huge, gaping mouth as it scoured the ocean for plankton. The huge crowds of snorkellers trying ...

    We stayed at Aguluz for a night on the 25th of Feb. Our host, Marilyn was the best host we could have asked for. She personally took care of all our bookings and made our stay at her home quite memorable. Marilyn went out of her way to feed me vegetarian food as I was the only vegetarian of all the people staying over that night. All the staff that work for her are very warm and welcoming and I absolutely fell in love with her cute grandson. We would love to go back and stay at Aguluz whenever we visit Donsol again.
