Dugong Tour in Coron

These gentle giants glide serenely through the crystal-clear waters of the Philippines, captivating hearts with their docile nature and prehistoric charm. Embark on an unforgettable adventure with a dugong tour and witness these magnificent marine mammals in their natural habitat.

What are Dugongs?

Dugongs are herbivorous marine mammals belonging to the order Sirenia, closely related to manatees. Often mistaken for mermaids in folklore due to their gentle nature and graceful movements, these fascinating creatures spend their days munching on seagrass meadows. Their diet plays a vital role in maintaining healthy seagrass ecosystems. Dugongs are classified as vulnerable due to habitat loss, hunting, and accidental entanglement in fishing gear. The Philippines is a critical haven for these gentle giants, with populations concentrated around Palawan, Cebu, and Mindoro. Responsible dugong tours play a crucial role in their conservation by raising awareness, promoting research, and supporting habitat protection efforts.
