We are now offering guests the opportunity to swim with the dolphins as well as watch them from the boat. Yesterday’s inaugural tour was a huge success, swimming with a small pod of about 30 pan-tropical spotted dolphins. Unfortunately my underwater camera packed up so I don’t have any photos to post.
The most common dolphins in Sogod Bay are pan-tropical spotted dolphins, and we regularly also see spinner dolphins, melon-headed whales and short-finned pilot whales which can grow up to about 6 metres in length. There are also occasional sightings of Fraser’s dolphins and pygmy killer whales.
We will be using a different venue for the bbq lunches on our whale shark tours this season. It has a very nice, large and comfortable cottage and affords stunning views of Limasawa Island and across the Bohol Sea to Camiguin and northern Mindanao.
