It was almost midday when we reached the resort in Oslob, Cebu. One of the residents told us that their municipality is very quiet before, until some of the whale sharks have visited their sea and it’s been already two years that those whale sharks were staying there. The residents are happy because of the income they get from local and foreign tourists who are coming every day. We immediately followed the guide for whale shark watching briefing. They discussed the rules and the things we should avoid while swimming with the whale sharks.
Then, we ride in a boat and not so far away from the shore, we noticed the amazing giant creatures swimming in the salty water in Oslob, Cebu. I tried to swim with them for few minutes and I saw some of the whale sharks. I was quite nervous when I saw one of them for the first time because of its intimidating large mouth. Whale shark is the largest fish and eats plankton and small fish. I realize how beautiful whale shark is, from mouth to its fins; its large gills and its random stripes and dots markings are just perfect. It was just one of the greatest experiences in my entire life.
Immeasurable excitement, deepest enthusiasm, unexplainable feeling of joy and overwhelming happiness are the feelings of proud Daddy’s-to-be. Expression is being served daily by bringing rose to his beloved wife and precious God’s gift, his little angel coming very soon. There is where, the love as I see it.

Our last day of adventure was the most thrilling one. Why? We went to the lake, then river, forest, mountain and then vice versa. One of my dreams comes true experience is going to the wildlife. Here at Kingfisher Park, I have an exciting and memorable experience with Mother Nature. A haven of biodiversity and a place of countless natural wonders is such a fulfillment of my dream. Long hours of mangrove kayaking are truly an unforgettable for us. According to our tour guide, Kingfisher Park calls itself home of six kingfishers and many species of plants and animals endemic to Palawan. I’m a big fan of birds; unfortunately I haven’t seen at least one of them. We just heard their sounds. The park was quite big with enormous aged large trees. After trekking we went back to the river and start kayaking again going through the Kubo sa Dagat Restaurant. Yeah, it’s a native restaurant/hotel which is located at the lake. We had the superb lunch of seafood there. By afternoon, our group decided to go back to Coron town with a beautiful view of sunset and rainbow which completes our tour.

It was about 700 steps to trail up to the summit of Mt. Tapyas, but when you reached the top, the spectacular views of Coron Islands were really worth it. Here are some of our photos.
