Oslob is bordered to the north by Boljoon, to the west by Ginatilan and Samboan, to the east by the Cebu Strait, and to the south by the town of Santander.
The whale sharks may be seen in Tan-Awan, which is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from the town center of Oslob. Its popularity as a tourist attraction has increased. Visitors love seeing local fishermen feed the whale sharks by hand.
Oslob Whale Shark Watching is a whale shark viewing location; you may dive or scuba very up to these gentle whales. Prices for foreigners and locals vary respectively.
Note: Underwater cameras can also be rented. It is a strict regulation not to touch the whales. They may unintentionally touch you, but based on my experience, I was not hurt in any way.
- Snorkeling: 1,000 PHP
- Scuba Diving: 5,000 PHP
Note: There is also the option of simply watching them from the boat for 500 PHP for residents and 1,000 PHP for visitors.
Briefing & guidelines
The entire session will last about 30 minutes and will be done in batches. There will be a briefing on the guidelines to follow before venturing out into the water.

We were here last September 3, and it was a pleasant experience for my friends and family that I will never forget. If you have the money and time, I highly suggest Oslob Whale Shark Watching since it is a once-in-a-lifetime event that you should make the most of.
