Join our tour for an unforgettable dolphin-watching experience in Dumaguete. Not only will you witness the incredible creatures, but you will also have the opportunity to explore the Manjuyod White Sandbar. Despite being an offbeat location, Manjuyod White Sandbar is a hidden gem that should not be missed if you are in Dumaguete. Take a dip or snorkel in its crystal-clear waters or simply relax on its fine white sandy beach.

Encountering dolphins in their natural habitat is dependent on weather conditions, and therefore, sightings cannot be guaranteed.


Meet at your hotel in Dumaguete and head to Tanon Strait in Negros Oriental to see the dolphins, which are best spotted early in the morning between 6:00 am and 7:00 am. Accompanied by a skilled spotter, search for these marine mammals.

After watching the dolphins, head to Manjuyod Sandbar, a 7-kilometer-long white sandbar, and relax, swim, and take pictures. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach before returning to the mainland and transferring back to your hotel.
