Tanawan, Oslob in the south eastern part of Cebu is now famously known as the site for experiencing the rare sight of amazing whale sharks diving in and out and playing in the ocean. It is during the good weather, when the water is clear that these whale sharks come out. They’re huge and massive and are never known to be fiercely violent. So you can swim with them.. subject to government rules … No feeding No approaching them less than 5 feet. Cameras can’t have a flash… but you can swim with them, if you’ve got what it takes!
