The Dolphin Watching Tour is a seasonal Palawan activity where you can watch dolphins swim, play and jump next to your boat. The best time to have this adventure is from April to October when dolphins visit the Puerto Princesa Bay.

Why do you think dolphins jump out of the water?

Scientists who have studied dolphin behavior have different theories as to why dolphins jump out of the water. Some theories include:

  • Dolphins save energy jumping through air as it takes less effort to move through air than it does for them to swim through water.
  • Dolphins may get a better view of distant things such as food by jumping over water. They can see seabirds feeding or hunting for food above the surface to identify areas where there is abundant food supply.
  • Other scientists think that this is a way for dolphins to communicate with others in their pod.
  • There are also some theories that suggest jumping is a way for these sea animals to get rid of pests clinging to them.
  • Then again, some researchers think that it is just their way of having fun.
