Welcome to Padre Burgos Castle Resort


Watching and Swimming with Dolphins in Sogod Bay, Southern Leyte, Philippines


Dolphin watching with Padre Burgos Castle Resort offers you undoubtedly the best dolphin watching experience in the Philippines. There are very few tourists around, so there is never more than one boat watching the dolphins, watching the dolphins is a totally natural experience, and sound ecological practices are strictly observed. Dolphins are common all year round in Southern Leyte, and we have a 100% record of finding dolphins on our dolphin watching tours.

There are 27 species of dolphins resident in Philippine waters and the most common dolphins in Sogod Bay are pan-tropical spotted dolphins, which are usually found in large pods of 50 to 150 dolphins. Also seen regularly in the waters of Southern Leyte are spinner dolphins, Fraser's dolphins, melon-headed whales, pygmy killer whales, and short-finned pilot whales which can grow up to about 6 metres in length.

Dolphin watching tours are conducted in our superb new motor banca, Monarch of the Bay, with small groups of just 2 to 6 people and are also available to non-residents. To book a place just call or e-mail us.
