In a country such as the Philippines, surrounded by the sea, watching dolphins in captivity such as in Subic may be ridiculous. Of course nothing beats seeing these fun-loving creatures breach, do jumps and bow ride in their natural habitat -especially in picturesque Panglao. Aside from supporting local communities, joining a Dolphin watching tour helps fund projects to protect marine life.
Dolphin Watching Tours at Panglao Island in Bohol are usually included in snorkeling and beach-hopping Tours. The tour starts early in the morning when the sea is calm and the sun is not too harsh. On the way to Balicasag and Pamilacan Islands, dolphins can be seen catching a ride under boats and breaching the water -as if showing-off.
