Comments This was good to combine with Philippine Siren trip to Tubbataha as Tubbataha supplies lots of sharks and big fish, while Dumaguete has fantastical macro, like 1" frogfish and many types of nudibranchs. Day trip to Apo island is good for turtles and good reefs. Recommend another day trip by ferry to Oslob on Cebu Island to snorkel with whale sharks. The fishermen stopped hunting whale sharks and started feeding them buckets of small shrimp to get them to pass by snorkeling tourists. Mostly small (10'to 15') whale sharks are fed from 8AM to noon; then they get a rest from the tourists.
