The main attraction, one of the main reasons why you visit Cebu, these majestic beasts are definitely worth the hype. Just be mindful that the place is really popular.

We arrived at 6am to be out on one of the first boats. Parking is almost impossible if you arrive later in the morning. after a brief run down of the rules they take you out to see the whalesharks. Its guarenteed to see them.

First experience of snorkeling with whales. Super experience, just a pity that it is already a commercial place. Lots of people in a small place.

Very expensif to dive. They ask 1500 peso per person to be allowed to dive at this place, regardless of the price of the dive center, with a maximum dive time of 30 min. In addition, a fee for the use of your own camera.
