Interact with giant whales

The small barangay of Tan-awan in Oslob offers a unique marine adventure: white whale watching . The endangered animals, locally known as “tuki,” are attracting an average of 500 tourists each day. Fishermen feed the whales with shrimps called as “uyap” as tourists snorkel or dive for a closer look. A few minutes of interaction with the whales is worth PHP 300.

If you are planning to swim with a tuki in Cebu, make sure you follow the guidelines set by the local government. People are strongly advised against touching the animals, using flash cameras underwater and feeding the whales themselves. Visit Cebu and feel close to Philippine marine life.
