Reply nomad.justin on May 9, 2015 at 02:35 aw man I’m jealous! hope I can in Philippines Reply JB & Renee on May 10, 2015 at 21:48 Good post. It is indeed extremely rare, but some local fishermen in the Philippines have described seeing baby whale sharks not much longer than a foot. By rare, I mean like once or twice in their life! I was fortunate enought to go swimming with them in Donsol and Oslob. Though the Oslob encounter gets you really close to the sharks, it’s an unnatural practice and frowned upon by marine biologists and consevationists.
