Bohol Dolphin and Whale Watching
Bohol provide the best dolphin and whale watching experience. The spotters and local guides are the former hunters of dolphins, Bryde's whales, whale sharks and manta rays of Pamilacan Island. They abandoned the centuries-old hunting tradition and participate in the new alternative livelihood program.
The small island of Pamilacan is nestled in the heart of the Bohol Sea, the Visayas Archipelagos in the Philippines. Its name is derived from the word pilak, which is a large hooked implement made and used by the islanders to capture manta rays, whale sharks and bryde's whale.
The Bohol Sea is said to be a breeding ground of these mysterious but beautiful creatures. The island in previous times, served as a watch station against the intrusion of pirates and enemies of the Spanish colony as evidenced by the 200-year-old Spanish fort on the northeast side of the island.
Today, 235 families live in the island. The people used to hunt dolphins, whales, whale sharks and manta rays but these animals are now fully protected by law in the Philippines.
