Logistics for Dolphin Watching in Panglao:

We paid 1,500 Pesos in the end, for 2 people. Wait until you have done the dolphin watching first and they will take you to Balicasag Island for snorkelling – we also did this and note that there’s an additional entrance fee (50 Pesos) for the island and a further amount for the snorkelling.

Will you see Dolphins?

It’s not guaranteed but we saw them, and everyone we spoke to also saw them so I’d say it’s a high chance you will see dolphins! You’re in the Philippines remember – a paradise!
