Swimming with whale sharks in Oslob is one of the most amazing experiences the Philippines has to offer, and one of the best overall experiences I had while creating this Philippines travel video series.
The small fishing village of Oslob has developed a relationship with a group of 40K lb whale sharks by regularly feeding them their natural food- plankton. They invite tourists to snorkle and swim alongside the massive whale sharks during the gathering.
My whale shark encounter was the perfect way to end the Philippines travel vlog series. If you haven’t seen the 8 other episodes be sure to check them out, and subscribe to the channel for more travel adventures from around the world!

As I mention in the video, there is some controversy surrounding this practice. Just for the sake of staying informed, here is an article that outlines the reasons the practice might not be the best idea. Personally, I did not witness any physical interactions or injuries to the sharks during my time in the water.
