Assemblage of Manta Rays in Ticao Pass

Apart from Donsol that has established itself as a gathering point for whale sharks chasing the plankton rich waters of the bay, Sorsogon has another asset to offer to travelers coming to the country for adventure trips. These are the manta rays that were recently discovered in the shallow reef of Ticao Pass- a body of water within the area of Burias Island, Sorsogon, and Ticao Island which has the thickest concentration of plankton in the Philippines. The strong currents of San Bernardino Strait push large groups of plankton and other organisms to gather in the area. Ticao Pass and the surrounding areas are not new to divers. It has underwater beauty comparable to the richness of other famous dive sites in the country. It is due to its remote location and outlying distance that have made it unpopular to weekend divers.

The discovery started when a group of scuba divers headed by Conz Paz gathered to survey the reefs of Ticao Pass. During their first dive, they witnessed a few manta rays on their regular feeding time. Based on their recorded encounter, the divers returned repeatedly and found out that the numbers increased through June of 2003. Biologists concluded that there is a distinct season in which these magnificent creatures flock in the area. Few more observations have been conducted, they arrived on definite idea that these fleeting giants reach the cold water of Bicol from March thru July.

More surprises came out just after a year of investigation. New places beneath Ticao Pass such as deep walls and caves have been discovered. The most appealing site is what they called Manta Bowl- a depression in the shallow part of Ticao Pass where manta rays gather to feed. At the time of survey, divers spotted 15 manta rays on every group where “manta inhabitants” were mostly mixed gigantic specimens with over 12′ wingspans and passing juveniles rushing across. Personally proven, they asserted Ticao Pass a true site of underwater wealth.

Since Manta Bowl can be easily reached at 15m/50ft, which by any standard practically shallow, divers will have the chance to enjoy watching the mantas at satisfying bottom time. They proposed nitrox dive to be more advantageous as bottom time is increased while making a dive safer. Due to this immediate need, Bulan dive operators organized a Nitrox blending station in April 2004 to give certified divers even longer interaction with these fleeting underwater creatures of Ticao Pass.

To get there by air, Philippine Airlines and Air Philippines have regular flights from Manila to Legazpi City. By land, Philtranco Bus Co. has regular trips to Bulan, Sorsogon. The trip takes about 12 hours. From Bulan, a thirty minute boat ride will take you to the park of these magnificent giants. Though not many, accomodation and diving facilities are present in the area. Prepare enough cash.

The domineering view of Bulusan Volcano in the middle of a forest land is considered Sorsogon’s best touring adventure for either sightseeing and hard-hitting trips. Its emerald-green lake by the peripheral crater offers a refreshing sight of a well preserved natural park. The hike to the main crater, once experienced, undeniably turns out a real encounter with the wilds. Down by the mountains of Bulusan there is a town named Irosin that is catering hot spring resorts with man-made pools of curative effects. It is an ideal place to rest after a long day walk.

Bacon Beach although incomparably far from other beaches, has shores best for picking shells and corals. And despite of its remoteness, Sta. Magdalena has strips of white sand beaches overlooking the neighboring islands of Samar and Leyte. Bulusan Lake

Points Of Interest

Rizal Beach– One of nice beaches in Sorsogon. Located in Gubat Sorsogon, it has a wide cove of flat golden sand ideal for swimming. Locals sell cheap shell crafts along the beach or around the resorts fronting the shore area.

Bacon Beach– Bacon is an old town near the pacific with an array of rugged cottages along Tolong Gapo beach. Packed by locals mostly weekends, this beach has a welcoming ambiance but the unsightly presence of drying sea weeds on the shore and big waves on windy season may turn out disappointing if you come mainly for swimming. Best to visit the place is at summertime. Avoid weekends if you prefer to enjoy the whole place for yourself.

Paguriran Island Farther ahead of Bacon beach resorts, and past the remote districts of Bacon, your trip ends in a beautiful and extremely serene village of Sawanga- the home of the unknown Paguriran Island. It is a little island where its little lagoon in the middle gets filled with sea water flowing from the sea at high tide, while powdery white sand connects the little island to the shore during low tide.

Pagol Beach On the way to Sawanga, don’t miss the left turn to Pagol Beach. The place is almost invisible but as soon as you get there, a little piece of white beach covered with swept corals is a nice place for swimming and for a short rest.

Bulusan Lake– Inside the deep forest of the town of Bulusan lies a crater lake of a volcano with emerald green water reflecting the unexploited tropical vegetations lying along its rim. Some picnic shades are provided but the hike around the lake-edge, which takes about an hour, is a worthwhile experience.

Sta. Magdalena– lies few kilometers from the main south-bound highway has far-off but very pretty white beaches ideal for swimming and picnicking.

Tiklin Island– a banca ride from the pier of Matnog lies a secluded island with a private resort that sometimes allow campers to stay.

Bulusan

Bulusan Volcano Mt. Bulusan may not appear as majectic as Mt. Mayon but mountaineers will experience a more challenging climb than struggling with the rocky terrains of Mayon. It has abundant rain forest that is maintaining the presence of some of the wildest animals in the country. Wildlife is rich in the area where nights can be filled with roaring sounds of owls and presence of deers and boars at daytime. At night, darkness is brightened by the sprinkling lights of fireflies. Thus climbing Mt. Bulusan does not only invigorates a mountaineer’s obsession for heights, it also promises surprising encounters with wild animals and peculiar vegetation.

Mt Bulusan is located in the inner district of Sorsogon where a jeepney takes you to its town and a trycicle to its entry site, Bulusan Lake- a lake Mobdro oftenly mistaken as the volcano’s main crater. It is in fact a body of emerald green water by the peripheral crater surrounded by a densed gathering of trees and lush tropical plants. If not planning to hike farther to the volcano’s summit, a refreshing one hour walk around this lake is a worth-trying activity. And consider it as the beginning of a more interesting adventure if moving farther ahead. Expect challenging sights of thicker dense forest on the way that surprisingly emmerge to an open field of towering grass carpeting the surroundings towards the old crater valley called Agingay. This hike promises an extreme jungle experience but without the threat of distressing incidents.

Trekkers can camp overnight or leave the same day but caution should be maintained, this volcano is still active. Be sure to wear thick hiking boots, long pants Mobdro APK and jackets to protect from unexpected presence of leeches and stingy insects. Taking at least one guide is highly advised.

On the way back, you will pass by tiny roads heading to some falls and hot springs with varying temperatures for a short healing bath.

Donsol, home of Whale sharks

Whaleshark, Photo courtesy of Sophie RodriguesThis place at the southern tip of luzon recently made a huge break on the country’s falling tourism when hundreds of whale sharks were spotted congregating in the muddy but plankton-rich waters of Donsol. Whale shark spotting in sorsogon became a word of mouth passed on to every tourist exploring the Philippines. As thousands of visitors arrive each season to swim and witness their friendly behavior, the unknown town of Donsol, in which its economy was initially reliant to fishing and cottage industry alone, now benefits from higher revenue brought by the presence of these giant fish locally called “Butanding”.

These gentle giants arrive from as early as November but the official season starts from February and runs until end of May, where the sea of Donsol is at its clearest and calmest. Local tourism officials and professional divers have established guidelines on proper whale shark watching intended to maintain safety and to defend the creatures from over exploitation.

whaleshark2.1.jpgThe town of Donsol is 1 hr drive from Sorsogon and slightly similar if you would be coming from Legazpi City. These two cities are jumping-off points to Donsol: both have decent accomodations, and transporting facilities. Lodging in Donsol can be fussy and rental shops for snorkeling equipments are still scarse. It is recommended to bring your own gears and packed lunch if staying there for the day.

Upon reaching the area, directly proceed to the Tourism Office for registration, orientation and arrangement of boats, guides and whale shark spotters. Prepare some cash (as credit card is yet not facilitated) for registration, boat fee and assistance. At this time, a boat accomodating 5-7 persons costs 2,500 Php which can be shared individually and registration is 300php each person. Be sure to be there before eight in the morning to avoid delays of procedures, and be aware that during this time sea water is smoother and calm. Thus, the calmer the water, the more whale sharks get close to the surface and there are more chances of interaction.A whaleshark close encounter.

Best time to go is in March or April when these creatures are most present. It is guaranteed to witness minimum of 8 to 10 whale sharks in two hours. So take your time, swim with them and enjoy more of their sociable behaviour. Only cameras without flashes are allowed to use.

Because of their mysterious congregation, the once “never heard” town of Donsol became a common word of mouth relayed to every tourist arriving in the country.

To get there, PAL has regular flights from Manila to Legazpi City and Philtranco Bus Co. has routes bounded for Sorsogon.
