Since 2012 the small town of Oslob (2 hours drive from Moalboal) on Cebu Island has Whale Sharks just in front of the beach - every day! Also the visibility in Oslob is always much better than in Donsol where they can be seen only seasonal.
Our partner Ocean Gems Mermaid Academy can even arrange a professional Whale Shark Mermaid Shoot!

Some say the feeding practice of the fisherman is not environmental friendly. Still for many of our guests it is a once in a lifetime chance to have a close up encounter with Whalesharks and also get to see how the local community is benefiting from this new attraction.
We leave it up to our costumers to decide. Below some short clips about the situation in Oslob:
