Swimming with sharks in Oslob, not Hollywood
MetadataShow full item record
And it was one of the most thrilling experiences I’ve ever had. I’ve been itching to write about my morning spent with whale sharks—which are the largest fish in the world, with some growing as big as a school bus—as part of my homecoming to the Philippines this year. Upon arrival just after sunrise in Oslob, our group went through a quick briefing. No touching nor riding the sharks, always keep at least 1.8 meters (6 feet) distance from the sharks, no sunscreen on our skin to keep the water pollutant-free and no flash photography. After boarding an outrigger boat, I thought it would be a long ride, but the boat stopped at only about 45.72 m (150 ft) from the shore. Suddenly, I saw several of these magnificent creatures swimming languidly in the water.
