Too many people, too few sharks - There are now at least 3 dive operations and visiting liveaboards using this site. We saw a couple of whale sharks and it was cool, but had to deal with 16 other snorkelers all trying to see the same whale shark (fortunately we were faster and could go deeper). Probably same elsewhere in the Philippines where there are whale sharks.
