One is supposed to gawk at the big fishes being bought and weighed without being in the way. The silent auction is more interesting to watch as the auctioneers are just doing hand gestures. Remember that the minutes lost in these areas equal big bucks, so there is a rush after sales to return the fish to ice, stored or transported away. There are small stores open for breakfast but the offered food are Filipino dishes. Get there by 6 a.m., bring socks and rent boots. Hold your breath against the fishy smell and enjoy. It's not for everybody, only for adventurous souls who want to see local auction for tuna.

Except for the mandatory rental of white rubber boots, you are basically on your own while inside the fishing port. The tour would have been more meaningful, interesting and educational if there is a video (wide screen) before start of the actual tour to explain about the tuna industry in the philippines, different species of tuna, how the fishes are caught in the open sea and brought to the port, a description how the fishes are sold starting from unloading them from the boats up to the public wet market or canning factory and of course some directions on how to go about the tour around the facility. Without this, the tour is simply limited to basic visual appreciation of what is happening inside the port and the sight of hundreds of giant tuna but without really understanding the big picture. And by the way, wearing the white rubber boots doesn't feel good knowing that many people have worn them before you and you wonder if the inside of the boots are cleaned/sanitized at all. And where does the rent money go? No official receipts are issued. But this is a government facility, right?

FRESH AND BIG TUNAS ARE THE BEST OF THE SOUTH or maybe in the whole Philippines but they sell the cheapest because you can bargain price. As long as you know how to bargain, its a win win. Try it out!
