Donsol Snorkeling

The 5th most popular snorkel dive spot in Philippines.

Southeast of Manila and southwest of Legazpi City, the snorkeling around Donsol is known for its whale sharks. From November to May, the warm waters are filled with plankton and krill that attract the whale sharks.

Tip - While snorkeling off Donsol, make sure to use a diver down flag since the boaters tend to drive fast and be unaware of snorkelers in the water.

Overall, Donsol is the 5th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 12 snorkeling dives in Philippines.
