The ultimate whale shark experience - natural & uncrowded

Whale shark snorkeling with Padre Burgos Castle Resort offers you undoubtedly the best whale shark experience in the Philippines. There are very few tourists around, so the whale shark sanctuary is always uncrowded, the water visibility is usually excellent, snorkeling with the whale sharks is a totally natural experience, and sound ecological practices are strictly observed. The whale shark season in Southern Leyte usually starts around early November and runs through until the end of May, but can end much earlier without warning. The chances of seeing whale sharks during the season are around 95% - check our Whale Shark News page for current information.

We lead small groups, with a minimum of just 2 people, on wonderful and unforgettable full day whale shark tours. Departing from the resort's private beach the tours include dolphin watching, snorkeling in a superb marine sanctuary, a visit to the birthplace of Christianity in the Philippines (or a 2nd snorkelling site in lieu), and a delicious barbecue lunch at the beach, in addition to 3 hours' whale shark interaction.

Our whale shark tours are also available to non-residents, and to book a place just call or e-mail us.
