Watching of whale sharks in Oslob Cebu is 100% guaranteed. Whale sharks can be seen in a small barangay Tan-awan, which is 10 km away from the center town of Oslob. Whale shark watching in Cebu started last September 2011 and it became popular all over the world when the news hit in the internet last November 2011. By December 2011, local fishermen's interact with the whale sharks by feeding them that result to flocking of tourist to the beach of Tan-awan.

Это место стоит 4 ч езды и раннего подъема. Эмоции зашкаливают. Лодочники помогают сделать фото и подплыть к рыбкам:)

A really good experience. Definitely something you have to experience yourself to understand just how awe inspiring these sharks are. There are mixed feelings on whether they should be fed and managed like they are, as it is said to interrupt their natural annual migration patterns but with the growing pollution and environmental changes along their migration routes anyway - with the protection they're afforded by the companies that deal with the sharks, it's hard to say. I'm still 50-50 as I don't know enough about the factors involved to reliably comment on it. A great experience to swim and snorkel with them though. The resorts are all fully booked at weekends, so plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

There was 4 of us, so we chartered a private car to drive from Cebu to Oslob. It was a thrilling and wonderful experience to swim with the whale sharks. We chose BCD Place. If you have your own mask and snorkel, bring it. The rental ones fit poorly and we struggled with them.

I took the bus down to Oslob from Cebu City in the morning and it took about 3 hours. Well worth it. I definitely recommend paying a little bit extra and actually snorkel with the whale sharks as you will obviously see them a lot better and its just an amazing experience.
