One of the main attractions in Oslob is swimming with the whale sharks. I really enjoy swimming except when I’m in the deep part of the water or I can’t see what’s under the water. In short, I have a “Thalassophobia”. I honestly have a lot of fears but I am trying my best to overcome some of my fears.
Around 5am we took a private van going to Oslob. After 3 hours, we arrived at the place. Upon the arrival, we registered and had a short orientation. The short orientation was about the rules and regulations when swimming with the whale sharks.
Few minutes after, a guy took us to a small boat. We were not allowed to put lotion and bring some stuffs. We were able to take pictures and swim with the whale sharks for 30 minutes.
The experience was really great! Though at first I was really scared because the whale sharks are really big & we were in the deep part of the water, I still manage to face my fear (slight lang) haha.
