Oslob - Swimming with Whales Oct 17, 2014
I travelled to Cebu, Philippines in Feb 2014. I made sure that I plan to visit Oslob where you can swim with Whale Sharks. One of the most amazing things you will ever encounter if you like sea based activities. It is very common to go snorkeling and diving but you don't get to swim with Whale Sharks that often. We stayed in Cebu and had to leave the hotel about 3 am as it take about 4 hours to reach Oslob. When we reached Oslob at 7am, we had a choice to rent underwater camera which we did not want to miss. We were given a simple safety briefing, each of us got life jackets and made our way into the sea. The Whale sharks were brought close to the shore by the personnel there and you will get a snorkeling gear where you can watch the whale sharks swim next to you and the personnel there will help you to take some pictures using the underwater camera rented. After a while we realized it would be awesome to go deep inside and take pictures right in front of the whale sharks. But it can't be done with life jackets so who cares. Here goes the life jacket off and time to go deep in and be as close to the Whale Sharks as possible where you can see them closer and take some awesome pictures. I have travelled to a few places as of now but Swimming with whale sharks in Oslob still ranks No. 1. I am sure I will do that again once in my life with someone who is as passionate as me to find something different to do in the sea.

Whale Sharks Watching in Cebu City Aug 29, 2013
I went to Oslob, Cebu City to see the whale sharks. I was so early and make sure there are whale sharks that day before going the tour. And I was so lucky that day, I've seen nine whale sharks. Yes, nine huge whale sharks :=)) It was amazing seeing the huge whale sharks and was able to go swimming also. I enjoyed swimming with the whale sharks and would love to do it again. Tourists are allowed to swim to see the whale sharks 30 to 45 minutes and the tour fee is inclusive of snorkeling gear already.
