Whale Shark Diving

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.
