it was a thrill for us to be in the water with the Whalesharks. However, the aftermath, we felt it is not right that the 2 whalesharks are swimming within a length of less then 150 meters. In order to keep these 2 fish within the catchment area for the tourist business. There are 2 boats that goes up and food is constantly dropped alongside so that these fish will follow the boat. for a fish on this big size. As the boat do not maintin a straight path, the fish hardly swims straight on. Worst still, every 80 meters or so it makes a turn. I reckon it is less then every 10 seconds that it makes a turn back as it follows the 'feeding boat' . I was told that it starts as early as 7ish in the morning and probable ends around 3pm. Can you imagine the fish swimming in this manner for more then 6 hours daily. I regretted spending time and money on this.

So far nothing compares to the whale shark experience in Oslob, Cebu, Philippines. And I mean nothing.

Attached are pictures the boatman took that shows me swimming and "playing" with the whale shark. I didnt touch it but due to camera angle, one picture looks as if I am "wrestling" with the whale shark. Another one shows as if it was nudging me. Fantastic.

And the cost is less than $10.00 (right ten). When my wife and I took the Alaska cruise and joined the whale watching tour, it costs us $150- each (if memory is correct). And what we saw was the fluke for I think 4 times and at a distance. By the way I rented the underwater camera for $12.00 and requested the boatman to take pictures.

The whale shark that I swam with is a baby one. The mother would have been 2.5 its size. But who is complaining 😊😊
