Top 7 activities / things to do in Donsol ! Price Whale shark watching , island hopping , fireflies , scuba diving ...
he price 3500peso between the amount of people there are . For example , if it's low season , you might not have enough people to go with so you might end up paying 3500 on your own , + 300 peso registration fee .
Or in busy season you could have full boat ( 6 people ) and can split price between 6 + each pay registration fee .
So make sure you arrive early for this one . 7 am is the best time , everyone then arrives so they put people together in groups of 6 and then it's cheaper (585+300) .
At 2.30 am there was a damn mouse in my Alexandra guest house room .. Wtf . Really ? . I packed all my shit up and switched on fan , hoping it will not come back because of the noisy fan .
My alarm rang at 7 am .. Looks like my little new friends with big ears did not come back .Or maybe he just walked over me very quietly , anyways I was too tired to stay up to wait for it .
I arrived at Donsol tourist center in7.30AM as the reception asked me to , one day before .
More on Prices and times and system in my first post about Donsol Whale Sharks
And it was full of people . Chaos everywhere , no sense of who is going first .. I stood at the counter for few minutes . I pushed my money in direction to receptionist (she had all my paperwork from the day before , when i went out but didnt see whale sharks , so i was hoping she would try to sent me out as soon as possible ) .
She did not take money , she just ignored me . Just madness .then a guy next to me asked for Finns and I walked out for second to show him counter , when I walked in my spot on the boat was already taken by other person and reception looked at me and said :all the boats are gone , you will need to wait for more people to come .I was angry at this point , are you joking or what , I waited yesterday for 4 hours and you want me to wait today . What's wrong with you . After my night adventures with mouse friend I was not in a mood to wait
I got really angry , because I was on time , but still had no place on the boat ..
Angry I was eating my snickers by the door and waited ..
After 1 hour wait : Andy ,from local dive show approached me and said that I could join on elf the boats for whale sharks , but there are oly 4 people -plus me . So 5 in total ..We all agreed to pay for 6st person . I paid 585 fee 1/6 of the 3500 and then another 117 peso on top as in the place for the 6st person . ( 585 /5)
