"The Early Diver Gets More Dive" Top 5 Page for this destination Donsol Favorite Tip by bike_packer

Favorite thing: When planning to go "Butanding" whale-shark watching, be at the jump-off point as early as possible for the following reasons. 1. The sea is calm and flat as an airstrip in the morning. 2. Being early to take-off means lesser boats in the water at the same time. That is, more chances to spot a butanding and interact with (Remeber there's a policy of 1boat/group only per butanding and first-come-first-dive). 3. Spare you from more damaging sunburn as the sun heats up more as noontime approaches.
Recommended time: 6 to 10 AM.
Update as of April 2006 : The Visitor Center opens at 730AM. Considering filling up the forms, registering and watching the orientation video; the first boat leaves at 8AM. Whew, it's hot out in the sea by that time already considering that the Butandings show up as early as 6AM.
Fondest memory: The "Butanding" experience haunted me for quite a long time!
