The experience of whale watching in Oslob Cebu is more fun than many people know. The most exciting element, surprisingly, is actually the whale shark, commonly called butanding within Sorsogon or Tuki by the community fishermens in Oslob Cebu.

These Whale sharks are in reality the largest shark in the world. Individuals called it a whale shark simply because of its enormous size (such as a whale), not because it’azines a type of whale.?It is just currently being called a Whale shark because of the near resemblance they have to fish. They are characterized by his or her flattened head, large mouth, and docile dynamics.
Its more fun in Oslob Cebu
We quit Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort earlier to meet the rest within Oslob for our Tuki Interaction.?Town of Oslob is located in Southern part of Cebu and seemed to be recently became a common tourist spot while using discovery of these helpful whale sharks in the clear waters connected with Oslob.
From Ester Pension, we remaining our things subsequently proceeded to the enrollment area to have protection orientation before heading to the boat. I’d been pleased when I found out that the local government is implementing some laws and regulations for the visitors and also boatmens. The local government regarding Oslob was questioned trapped on tape when a photo demonstrating a girl riding over a whale shark surfaced this social media sites.
Its more fun from the Philippines
Whale watching begins about 5am but knowing how worn out we were from a 1 week of fun in addition to adventure, we select not to do it at the the morning. Needless to say, a fee is priced followed by a short positioning that spells out this whale watching etiquette.

The readers guidelines was created to defend the whale sharks. Here are some with the guidelines they mentioned to us :
- Visitors needs to stay 5 meters from the Whale Shark
- They are not Tarsier but still No to Flash Photography
- Sunscreen cream is poisonous on the Whale Sharks… and Yes Tanning lotions too
Underwater Police are all over the place to make certain that no one violates the laws. Violators will have to pay fee charges or get involved in community service.
Playful Whale Sharks
Upon achieving the viewing region, I was really amazed on what i found. There are so many whale sharks surrounding our own boat and some turn out just following some other boats for meals.?What I like in Oslob is that you simply don’t have to dive deep just to view the whale sharks as they are visible from the shallow and obvious waters unlike in Sorsogon.

When you are out there within the sea it does take long for the whale sharks to appear. These giants of the sea bravely approach the fishing boats and delay as though they are ready for something.?The fisherman treat the whale sharks seeing that pets, building trust because they are there often as well as posing no hazard; the whale sharks calmly go swimming to the boats.
Whale Shark following the Boat
You can actually reach out as well as touch them, but unfortunately the rules state that only the fishermen are allowed just about any contact with the sharks. Feeding is also unacceptable. Attempting to pet the whale sharks could result in a stampede outside the area, preventing various other visitors the opportunity to start to see the whale sharks.?I guess with some individuals rules are meant to end up being broken. I observed a bout filled with yuppies who are applying sunblock as if there’s zero tomorrow.

The excitement of the celebration has been known to cause many people to jump in the water and also swim with the whale sharks, because they’re not dangerous to humans. If you ever dare, make certain you steer clear of the huge butt fin and its large mouth.?Although My spouse and i stayed on the boat even though the rest are swimming, I still experienced Whale watching since they are very visible from where I used to be seated.
After our close encounter with Whale Sharks within Oslob we headed in order to Laguna Restaurant in Cebu City to have lunch while using officials of the Division of Tourism Spot VII. For our last task, we visited the actual?Imperial Palace?Waterpark?Resort as well as Spa?for a holiday resort inspection and evening meal.

The total 6 days of getting out of bed early, food journey, resort inspections, experience activities and property trips are truly wonderful. Its probably certainly one of best trips We joined so far. After our dinner, many of us proceeded to the Mactan Airport terminal. While the rest needed their flight to Manila, I decided to have my personal ticket rebooked and extend my stay in Cebu. I just need a complete remainder and a little bit of cleanse:)
