I still remember last 2008 when some butandings fed at Calayo bay. We rushed and camped there for a whole day to see these gentle giants but we haven't got a glimpse even of their dorsal fin. Here are some photos and a video of the rescue.

At the time of this writing I just have the small picture of what had transpired, I don't have the big picture of the story. Maybe later when Kuya Pao dropped by at the cafe I'll ask him. So I just copied this from the album.
