WHALE WATCHING VIDEO - Puerto Princesa Palawan, Philippines

The call of amazement from everyone was beyond explanation.   We were lucky that besides dolphins we saw this amazing whale though so near and yet so far from our reach.  Do you know that feeling when you get so emotional that tears are just on the brink of falling out from your eyes?  That you are so overwhelmed by what you saw that something is just going to burst from inside you?  I don't know about my other companions but that is just how I felt at that moment.  So indescribably magical!

What we saw was a Short-Finned Pilot Whale (Globicephala Macrorhynchus).  It has a big almost round head, a falcate dorsal fin with wide base located closer to their head.  The male grows to be 7m long, while the female grows to be 6m long.

The great thing about dolphin watching in Palawan is that they offer 100% money back guarantee if you don't see any dolphins during your tour.  Which only means that they are very confident that you will truly see these dolphins.  But I don't think the 100% money back guarantee applies to seeing the whale during your tour.  So seeing one is truly a big bonus.  And definitely a wonderous experience.

Some of my personal tips acquired during our dolphin watching expedition can be seen in my first post of Puerto Princesa Palawan.  To those who plan to enjoy this extraordinary experience,  I do hope you will love it as much as we did!


  1. hi!im planning a palawan tour dis coming summer.can i ask you ho much is the dolphin watching?thanks.

  2. Hi ynah,
    Thank you for reading my blog. I'm really sorry I wasn't able to reply immediately. Our tour was a package trip so I don't really know the detailed amount of each place we visit but I took the liberty of asking the hotel where we stayed of how much the dolphin watching is.

    The cost of dolphin watching is P900.00 per person. And oh, dolphin watching is only during the first week of February up to the end of October. The rest of the months not mentioned, there are no dolphins. So if you plan to watch, watch it during these months.

    Also, if you would like a few tips on Palawan tours you can read my blog on "Puerto Princesa Palawan, Philippines - Cost friendly Vacation Place". Just so to give you an insight. =) Hope you have a great vacation.
