The Tourism Visitors Center which overlooks and have control of the Butanding Interaction Activity is located at the jump-off point where the boats are docked. It opens at 730AM. First Come-First Served basis. P100/person registration fee after filling out forms and waivers. A 15-minute video orientation and you are ready to go. The first boat leaves just before 8AM.

It could have been better if the Center opens earlier (just like 2 years ago) so that the whale watching activity could start when it is not yet hot out in the open sea. Anyway, the Butandings show up as soon as the sun rises. One thing more I observed, at early morning when the sea is calmer, spotting the Butandings is easier - meaning, more dives. The sea tends to become choppy as afternoon approaches.

Address: Dancalan, Donsol, Sorsogon.
Directions: Barangay Dancalan is a fishing village that is about 3 kms past the town center.
