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...more

The whales are baited and follow the boats that feed them. It’s very sad to see this happening. The whale sharks cannot be migrating as they should as they are being fed like pets. People and boats are not supposed to be so close to...More
Like many people do, I read A LOT of the reviews on TripAdvisor before deciding to book the Whale Shark experience. I think it is important that you have the right expectations before going there. The sharks are beautiful animals and simply breathtaking to see...More

We needed to leave Plantation Bay resort as early as 3:30am for a 3hrs drive to arrive the beach for a long queue. Queue time was almost or little over 4hrs for a 20mins encounter, but I must say it was worthwhile the time.

If possible go early in the morning to avoid the crowd. The 1st boats goes out at 6am and the last boats is at 10am. Mind you there is a long queue most of the time (45 minutes to 90 minutes wait). The whale sharks are there... More
If possible go early in the morning to avoid the crowd. The 1st boats goes out at 6am and the last boats is at 10am. Mind you there is a long queue most of the time (45 minutes to 90 minutes wait). The whale sharks are there everyday whole year long, they are no longer migratory. After the excursions, go visit the sandbar at Sumilon Island
