Oslob Whale Shark Watching
Day 3Moal boal to Oslob Journey took around 2 hours to reach oslob , The journey was awesome since we can watch the beach all along the travel . Once we reach Oslob town we decided to opt for the whale shark watching . We had to pay 1500 pesos for the snorkelling tour (30 min) with whale shark . Additionally we can take go pro for rent . It costs 500 pesos .( Tip - suggest you to carry a underwater camera , Rented one is good enough). It is an experience to remember for a lifetime so having pics will be better . It was such a huge giant fish around 30 ft in size . It is very safe since Whale shark do not harm humans . They first take using small boats into the middle of ocean ,and will provide snorkeling gears. Boat persons will help to take the pics under water .
Rocksteady Dive Center Inc.
On one such dive trip with Rocksteady, we met this amazing Australian couple! Sophie & Matt. We talked about travels, and relationships, the amazing water and clear skies. and we drank beer! Their absolute shock upon hearing we met on Tinder 1.5 years ago was hilarious, and really truly broke the ice! we drank to that, and to tinder! Turns out it's quite the conversation starter! We spent the rest of the day sunning ourselves, and went back to shore to meet up for dinner and drinks! Sophie and Tapas, my tinder man, work in the same field, so they bonded heaps over that too. Plus i had lived in Australia for a semester, so there was that!
