Due to the large number of tourists, it is necessary to queue up for the boat. I waited about 15 minutes and finally arrived at us! Get on the crab boat and start looking forward to it, where are you, whale shark, whale shark, did not drive far, and followed the direction of the boatman, and saw a big mouth open on the water! Very close! The boatman will park in a row with other crab boats, and everyone can go snorkeling and swim with whale sharks within the limits of their boats! But can't touch him! See it swimming near you, you have to take the initiative to avoid it. There are a lot of whale sharks in the morning. There are only 3 and 4. When this behemoth appears in front of you, you will not be afraid at all, just want to get close to it. When I was chasing one of them to swim, I was suddenly hit by the one from behind. I wouldn't be able to touch it, but it ran into me on its own initiative. I really feel lucky! The whole whale watching time is half an hour. Each boat will have two or three boatmen taking the initiative to take pictures for you. There are 7 people in one of our boats. If you tip him, he will certainly help you take more pictures. Children who can't swim can go to watch, because whale sharks will surface and have good visibility underwater. You can see the cute big whale sharks while sitting in a crab boat.
Rosseauwe went to Balicasag from Panglao. first we did dolphin watching which I wouldn’t recommend. The boats circle the dolphins and charge after them to get a better view. Balicasag itself has a wonderful diversity of fush and sea turtles. we saw sea turtles feeding and it was great! Took a video with my phone but the quality isn’t great!
EnjoyTripThe beach is so clear and clean, that you can also swim with small fishes. The island is just small that you can just walk around it. Though you really need to rent a boat going there from bantayan island but it will just take 15 to 20 mins ride. You have to be in your swimwear when you get off the boat since there is no docking area, so you have to be ready for your legs to get wet. You cannot bring food in the island because there is a corkage so you have to eat first in the boat.
The Oslob Seafari Resort is an accessible, tranquil, and huge beach resort in the municipality of Oslob. It has huge affordable rooms, a crystal clear sea, a white sand beach, a pool, and a great service. We definitely enjoyed our weekend there. I booked our stay for only P3000.00 last 2019.
It is only a walking distance to the Whale Shark Watching center. You can also just ride a bus or a jeep to go to the Oslob Market or wherever within the municipal or the neighboring ones.

Cebu South's #oslob is still one of my favorite places on Earth.
I've been there twice already and I keep coming back. The old church. The Whale Sharks. The white #beach. The people. The ambiance. The Market. Oslob is just a town where you can go if you want to escape. ♥️
