We brought Caleb to swim with the Whale Sharks in Oslob.
It was a 3-4 hour drive from the city of Cebu.
We stayed overnight in a quaint resort so we could all be up and ready by 7 am to see the sharks.
At the briefing center. The Do’s and Dont’s of swimming with the whale sharks. This was also where we were charged the swimming/watching fee. So glad we didn’t leave our wallets at home!
500php to swim with the sharks
300php to watch
1000php for all foreigners
all children below 3 years old were free
I didn’t really expect Caleb to swim with us. But he wanted to get into the water with me as soon as I got off the boat. He wasn’t scared at all. I think I was more scared than him. He was fascinated by the sharks and kept on pointing to them. He wanted to stay in the water the whole time. But I had to put him back on the boat for my peace of mind.
Swimming with the Whale Sharks.
A must when visiting the Philippines!
