See up and close the largest fish in the sea

Overview

Are you ready to dive and swim with the biggest fish on the planet? Only three hours away from the Cebu metropolis, the coastal town of Oslob is your gateway to scuba diving with whale sharks adventure! Whale sharks live in tropical waters such as the Philippine seas. They are solitary creatures, but they don’t shy away when humans are around. A superb and reasonable package with Island Trek Tours will allow you to get close to these friendly carpet sharks. This trip entitles you to the rental of full diving gear plus a divemaster for your safety. For first-time divers, you may opt to have a 30-minute introductory course. Additionally, you can choose to have a dive with the sardine run in Moalboal, or you can add a side trip to the pristine white sand bar of Sumilon island.
