Only in Cebu! Who else wants to swim with the whale sharks? 
Read about it here. 


As a Cebuana, I can say this. 
Yes, it’s only in Cebu. The only place in the world to actively feed whale sharks. What for? A tourist attraction.
The only place in the world that puts profit above the long term effects of feeding a highly migratory, vulnerable to extinction, fish. 
The only place to really cheapen what should be a breathtaking experience with one of nature’s Giants. By conditioning them to beg at boats like puppy dogs. 
The only place where people complain about only having a 30 minute viewing time with, at times, up to 14 sharks a day. 
I’m a proud Cebuana, but not about this. Yes. Only in Cebu.
