The effusive Toto Kayabo runs separate tours to spot these creatures in Honda Bay. This is your best chance to spot wild (ie non-handfed) whale-sharks during the country's southwest monsoon (May to October). Weather permitting, the whale shark tours (minimum six people) usually only take place in the 10 days before and the two days after a full moon, while the dolphin tours (minimum 14 people) are daily.

Both tours must be booked in advance. Boats leave straight from the Baywalk area in central Puerto. Toto also runs night-time firefly tours that are preferable to the uber-popular Iwahig River firefly tours.
