Ethical Swimming with Whale Sharks via Helicopter

Perched on the side of the boat, scanning the ocean in anticipation. Adrenaline is pumping. Whether or not they’re known as gentle giants, they’re still 12 meters long!

The sleepy town of Donsol is comfortably accessible by helicopter. Saunter across luscious Luzon with awesome mountainous views and lingering fog, a sight only admired from a height. 

Hopefully you spot one, right from under the boat! Whale sharks are extremely wild and it is very rare not to see them when in season. With their majestical glide and distinctively patterned skins, they’ll soon appear from the deep-sea shadows for a memorable and ethical interaction.
