Whale sharks in Oslob, Philippines
Diving with Whale Sharks has been a dream of mine ever since I learned it was even possible! Rivalling dinosaurs in both size and weight, these prehistoric creatures have been swimming our oceans for upwards of 60 million years. Whale Sharks have been nicknamed “Gentle Giants”, as their diets consist mainly of microscopic plancton, and they are relatively non-agressive to anything much larger than that. The Philippine Islands are known for having large numbers of these majestic creatures migrating through between the months of January to May.
