I can't believe we actually had a super close encounter with whale sharks (locally known as butanding) in Oslob in the South Eastern Coast of Cebu (3 hours away from the city)!
Our experience here's better than in Donsol. 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 act like pets of the fishermen and are now getting used to the presence of humans watching them everyday.
Unlike Donsol, there's a higher chance you'll see the giant creatures up close without the need to chase them.
Is Whale Watching in Oslob really more fun for the fishermen, the tourists, the whale sharks and Mother Earth?
Read on about our Whale Shark Encounter, and what we think of the issues surrounding the Butandings in Oslob...
