Donsol Bay is part of the province of Sorsogon in the Bicol Region; it is famous for Whale Shark watching. During the months from January to June, whale sharks come to this place to feed with the seasonal algae boom. It has become a major tourists attraction. Turning the fishermen into environmental advocates and educators. Supplementing their income and contributing to conservation of these gentle creatures. The VR depicts our group's return after a successful encounter with 6 whale sharks. Typical boat setup includes a BIO (short for Butanding Interactive Officer, butanding being the local word for whale shark), a spotter, the boat captain, and a lifeguard.
