It's a sight to behold. Very fanciful. Although we went there while it was very crowded that we didn't have the chance to swim with the fishes. But I would love to go back some day!

Fish sanctuary is part of the itinerary if you hire a banca/boat from the matnog tourism office. The place has a pay toilet and an entrance fee for fish feeding. Am sooo amazed of the giant fishes. You will spend 10-15 mins in this place....More

You can do a side trip to this place while on your way to Subic beach. The fishws are big and obviously well fed. Be careful with the rafts. If yiu fall, the fishes tend to swarm by you.
