Silversea Expedition Cruises To Donsol


Donsol  and Ticao Islands flourished in the 1500s as shipping dockyards. They were known not only for the abundance of hardwoods, but also for the excellent shipbuilding skills of the locals. With the dawn of larger steel vessels and with modernization, these two towns have been left behind.  Donsol became a quiet fishing town while the people of Ticao Island shifted their focus to raising cattle for the Spanish owned haciendas.

Things drastically changed for Donsol in the late 1990’s when a traveller stumbled upon the island and noticed the large numbers of whale sharks in the waters surrounding the island. Amazingly, the Donsolanos considered these large sharks to be pests because of their habit of bumping into fishing boats. Today, the fate of the whale sharks relies on eco-tourism. Donsol is one of the few places in the world that can offer an almost assured whale shark sightings during the season, between November and June, when they visit the area to feed on the rich nutrients coming out of the mouth of the Donsol river.
