Dolphin Watching and Manjuyod Sandbar

Before going to Dumaguete, arrange for your Dolphin watching and Manjuyod Sandbar Tour. You can call Bais Toursim office (+63 35 402-8338). The Boats of the Tourism office was not available during our trip so a staff (Yan Yan) helped us by referring us to a private boat owner.

Rebecca the very charming boat owner ( +63 905-961-4678) went to our hotel to discuss the details of our tour the next day.

the whole day tour includes -dolphin watching, mangrove park and the manjuyod sandbar. you can also request the boat captain to bring you to an area where you can snorkel. The boat rate is P3,000, their boat has a capacity of 10 pax. We were also picked up at our hotel in Bais.

Manjuyod Sandbar

Angel, the boat captain and brother of Rebecca, picked us up in our hotel in Bais. The tricyle was just right for 3 passengers :) The ride to the wharf was quick and Rebecca was there to welcome us. Angel was also a good tour guide and he used to be the boat captain of one of the boats of Bais Tourism. The dolphins was really a sight! It was worth waking up early.

We would pass fishermen in their small boats and Angel helped us buy their day's catch. Fresh fish and shells, we know as Uni in japanese restaurants. These his assistant grilled and prepared for our lunch.

There are cottages in stilts that you can rent for the day or overnight (P2500) but we opt to just have our lunch in the boat) The boat owner can prepare your pack lunch or you can buy them in the city or your hotel.
