Day trip
Jul 2019 • Couples
We attended the whale sharks at Oslob on a day trip from Cebu. Left at 3:30am traveled straight to the whale sharks. Guide had organised tickets early so on arrival jumped straight on the boat and out to approximately 200 meters from the shore. Unbelievable experience & well worth the 3.5 hour drive. We engaged in the swim experience & hired a Go-Pro. Spent approx 15-20 minutes in the water with the whale sharks. Then returned to shore for a light breakfast of sticky rice & mango. Traveled to Tumalong falls then lunch and traveled back to Cebu after stopping briefly at an ancient church built in 1700’s. Great day out!!!

One of a kind encounter of the gentle GIANTS of the Ocean
It was the best experience in Cebu, seeing them up close is like a magical experience. Not only one but you can see multiple fleet of whalesharks.

Would strongly suggest not to go during weekend as the que are long due to a lot of local and tourists.

No food = no whale sharks
Apr 2019 • Solo
We arrived from our hotel 5am, and had the number 23. The whole experience was to begin at 6am, and at that time we could se some sharks from the shore out in the water. By 6:40 they announced that it will begin exactly 7am. The time webt by and at 7:40 they said that it will begin at 8:30. We asked our guide what we were waiting for, apprently the fishfood to feed the sharks! They did not bring any so we had to wait from 5 until 8:30! At 8:30 they annouced that we will begin now. Time weny by and when the clock was 9am they simply said ”sorry, no whale sharks today, try again tomorrow”. Everyone in our group dod come the whole way to Oslob to see the sharks, but because they did not have any fishfood we did not get to see them. The only good thing was that we did get our money back after 4 hour of sitting arround.

We did not recieve any information about why we waited from the staff itself undre the entire morning. As you might suspect, we do not recommend this trip

Yes, I agree with many other travelers, the sharks may have been "domesticated' and the crowds of tourists that flock to this place don't make much sense, but in the end, when you return and want to tell about your Philippines trip, for sure you will talk first about this.
It is such a special activity that you will find no parallel. It is not dangerous, nor adventurous, everything is closely monitored and planned. But when you look at the pictures you cannot gasp, wow, that is me with the shark!
There is just a short ride from the shore, maybe 100 yd, and you stay on the water for about 30 minutes. It is enough to get a feeling of this attraction. You will probably not do it again, but you are happy that you did it!
