Oslob is a small town near the southern tip of Cebu Island that encompasses 21 villages, including Tan-awan. It has become a domestic and international hotspot for tourism since 2011 due to the whale sharks that swim close to the coast.
I do not really support animal tourism. I have friends who already tried swimming with these gentle giants and came back home with exciting stories. I’ve been to Cebu several times but I’ve never been attracted to it. The only reason I did this is because I want to witness/experience first-hand how they operate the whale shark watching activity in Oslob.
