Whale Watching Briefing Site is located in Brgy. Tan-awan, Municipality of Oslob Cebu. Before the activity proper, every tourists needs to undergo a short orientation of Do’s and Dont’s. Local rates for watching P300, snorkeling P500 and diving P600. Viewing is daily from 6AM to 12NN.
I am aware that some people find this activity harmful and life-threatening for the whale sharks, but I cannot resist the urge to see them up close considering I can’t dive neither can I swim. As the vendor told us during our small chit-chat while placing our things at their locker for rent, Barangay Tan-awan has been blessed to have these creatures inhabit their place. I just hope that LGUs would be stricter with their rules and visitors to be responsible enough to prevent harm to these gentle giants.
