Migratory creature. Bigger than a bus. Humans are friends, not food.

If you haven’t guessed already, we’re talking about whale sharks, the largest known fish species that somehow survive on plankton that they feed on with their large mouths. Since these gentle giants are completely harmless to humans, it means that we can swim and snorkel with them – and generally bask in their glorious presence.

The first place that comes to our mind when it comes to whale sharks is the island of Cebu. Several years back, these sharks came to the shores of southern Cebu to the town of Oslob, which has given the once-quiet fishing town a huge popularity boost. And at the head of it all is Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa’s famous Oslob Adventure!

For an adventure of the lifetime, check out what Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa is offering you with its Oslob Adventure package:

Whale Shark Encounter

In collaboration with tour provider Tourismo, enjoy a one-day trip for two adults to Oslob (about four hours away by car) for your whale shark encounter. Everything you need – round-trip private car transfers, snorkels, and towels – and an English-speaking guide will be accompanying you on the trip. The hotel will also prepare a light and healthy meal to take along on the excursion.

Accommodation for Two

Shangri-la Mactan
