What is "Whale Shark Interaction"?

Whale sharks, or “Butanding” as they are locally known are the world’s largest fish reaching lengths up to 18m. They are remarkably gentle and docile enough that it’s generally safe to swim alongside them as they glide close to the surface of the water. Swimming with them was a captivating and surreal experience.

During the months of January to May, Donsol, Sorsogon in the Albay region of the Philippines is home to whale sharks that migrate to Donsol Bay to feed on its rich plankton and krill. The peak season is normally February to April.

The whale sharks during this time of year are so abundant that it isn’t a question of whether you would see these gentle giants or not, but rather, how many you would encounter.
