Nature has a way of making you feel small; your existence, your worries, your life, your whole being.. Swimming with these gentle giants in their natural habitat is by far, the most amazing experience. I don’t mind being small at all. πŸ“Έ @badjaw_

Morning surveys for whale sharks start with a 10 minute 'habal-habal' (motorbike) ride to this village called Son-Ok. Here with the local spotters, we join a small tourist boat and sail to a nearby area with whale sharks. When I return after a survey the wives of the spotters are often sewing together by the water, and offer me delicious Filipino meals and snacks. I love Son-ok! πŸŒ΄πŸ πŸ‹

Controling my breathe , trying to be not too exciteed just to get close to him so he wont' go away , been scuba diving for 9yrs but havent met them in the wild , been wishing that one day I will encounter them somewhere underwater. Feb 3,2018 is the day when we cross path, finally  as our spotters shouted get ready to jump into the waters because tiki tiki is there , my heart beats so fast and said to myself "THIS IS IT PANCIT"
.
.
The whale shark interaction in Pintuyan southern leyte is special compared to the world known Oslob in Cebu.
In Pintuyan you have to search for them for about an hour ,less if u get lucky, secondly they are not fed with krill, third u have to be a fast swimmer hence one soft flip of their Caudal fins is about a meter distance covered.
.
.
We had atleast 4x interaction within 1.5hrs.
A pure Definite bliss πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ‹πŸ‹
Thanks πŸ‘‰πŸ“Έ@badjaw_
Thank you to Adventure Southern Leyte and Maasin Tourism Office for this opportunity 😎😎😎

Over the weekend I had the honour of diving with majestic whale sharks in Pintuyan, Southern Leyte as they stay in the area as part of their migration feeding pattern. To see these creatures swim in the wild truly was an experience!

I thought I'd never see these creatures in the wild yet there it was. Graceful, slow but magical. Rare experience visiting them in their home. They go drifting close to the surface then slowly back to the deep and disappear into the blue. Resurface on another spot but not sure if its another one or the same from the previous sighting. They're unpredictable. There could be one, two or none at all. The chase was very exhausting but the experience was just #priceless. I saw genuine happiness from fellow freedivers that day (happy sharks too? 😊). If you ever plan to see these giants in a way most beneficial to them, try the #pintuyan #whalewatching. Help the whales, no to feeding the whalesharks, NO to #oslobwhaleshark.

🚨WHALE SHARK ALERT 🚨
.
Last week the guys headed down to Pintuyan, just a short drive south of our base, and hopped in the water with some rather large fishies 😍😬
.
For some of the team, it was their first time seeing these majestic creatures after years of tracking them! The videos and photos have been logged and sent to #wildbook in the hopes they’ve found some new individuals 😬

Whale sharks visit #Pintuyan seasonally, with some individuals returning yearly like this 7 m female. 
These spotty giants are locally called tiki-tiki, taking after the common gecko 'tiki' that also has spots on its skin.

Video 1 from this afternoon's dive. How beautiful is it to watch this sea snake swimming?!?! Stunning animal imo. Deadly as fuck though so won't get too close!

Video 2 from this morning's dive. Down at around 25m and out of nowhere this whale shark appeared... only got to see it for a brief time before it took off into the blue. @onejknight was a tad happy!

Nice to meet you Sir. Whale Shark! #pintuyan #whaleshark #ecotourism
Pintuyan Bay in Southern Leyte is not only home to whale sharks, locally called #tikitiki, but hosts incredible macro critters! Views from above are not bad either :-)

The #whaleshark season in #Pintuyan #SouthernLeyte is kicking off with some familiar and new faces :-) The #ecotourism endeavour is run from the village of #SonOk between November and May/June. The KASAKA spotters and guides have a zero-tolerance policy to ensure responsible tourism takes place. #TheirFutureOurFuture #Endangered #naturallight #sustainable #livelihoods #spots #nature #wild #Philippines #tikitiki @lamaveproject
