Cebu is a place of a thousand adventures, so tourists and locals too have a variety of destinations and activities to choose from if they want enjoyment, entertainment and thrill.
South of Cebu, just three hours away, is Oslob. A municipality that is famous for whale shark watching.
The “butanding” or whale shark is the largest fish in the sea that reaches up to twelve meters. Butandings are friendly giants of the sea. They feed on planktons and prefer to swim in warm or tropical waters.
Did you know that a whale shark is not a whale? Instead it is a big fish or a shark. It got its name because it is a filter feeder like a baleen whale and it can grow as huge as a whale like 40 feet or even more.
The curiosity and interest in whale watching could be also from the fact that these gentle nonmamalian giants are endangered due to recreational and commercial fisheries. Whale watching in Oslob has become more than just an adventure but an activity to help raise environmental awareness to protect and preserve whale sharks.
