I can’t believe how close of an encounter I had with a whale sharks (locally known as butanding) in Oslob in the South Eastern Coast of Cebu ( 3 hours away from the city)
Our experience here was better Unlike Donsol, there’s a higher chance you’ll see this majestic creature up close without the need to chase them. In Oslob, the whale sharks congregate in one area near the beach where the fishermen feed them krill (small saltwater shrimps) every morning.
Also, they seem to be more like pets for the fishermen and they seem to be more comfortable with the presence of humans watching them.
