Scuba diving in Oslob
This spot, situated in the southeastern part of Cebu Province, is well-known as a site for whale shark watching, which first started in September of 2011. Local fishermen started feeding the whale sharks who came to visit the area and as a result many tourists come here specifically to see the whale sharks being fed and to snorkel and dive among them. Unfortunately, when the water is too muddy these sharks are not coming for feeding.
When to go
There is a dry season from February to September and the wet season that starts in October. The average water temperature ranges around 27-30C/80-86F.
What to see
The site is known to house a school of 22 to 40 whale sharks at a time. Other marine species can be seen here as well, including numerous jacks and sardines.
