Our experience on the Oslob Whale Sharks Tour

Please note:

This article discusses an experience for a tour that is no longer available. We’ve kept it here for archival and educational purposes only. We appreciate your understanding and invite you to explore our other exciting sea and land/island tours on our Tours page.

For the past few months, we’ve been part of a really special and rare opportunity to experience the grandeur of the magnificent creatures, Whale Sharks (Butanding in filipino).

The whale shark watching experience feels surreal and beautiful. They’re so large but so graceful as they swim alongside you. Getting up close and personal with these friendly giants really makes you feel close to nature and reconnect with the world around you. (more…)

No damage from Sendong Storm

Published on: December 21st, 2011  •  No comments yet

We have been receiving a number of messages on our Facebook page regarding tropical storm Sendong. Apart from debris on our 800m beach, brown sea water, a few fallen coconut and banana trees, we are thankful that little structural damage was caused at the resort.

The next day after the storm, apart from light storm, it returned to a regular summer day. Our Beach Patrol has cleaned up debris from the beach so that diving and water sports can continue as normal.

We extend our deepest sympathy for those who have lost belongings, homes and family/relatives because of this unforeseen storm.

Here’s another article that we dug up to share with you. This article was written by Gary Evans for The Australian newspaper. Here’s a snippet from his License to chill article.

“WHEN you see two men in blue T-shirts stamped Beach Patrol sweeping 300m of white coral beach at low tide with brooms made from coconut fronds you realise you are in a place where perfection is demanded.”
