Last weekend some of our team including Kieran, Adam, Mike and myself got the chance to stay at the Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort to explore the area and experience a new area of the Philippines. Although Kieran, Adam and Mike had finished a TechTalks Cebu the night before, I flew straight from Vancouver over night and after a transfer flight from Manila to Dumaguete finally arrived at the destination to be greeted by smiles and drinks.
Shortly after arriving we ventured to a well known local spot called Tumalog Falls which had a visually stunning water pool formed by the 20 meter high waterfall. As if it could not get better, we also had a picnic arranged by the resort at the base of the falls with a full roasted pig or known as Lechon in Filipino presented with many other eats. The Sumilon Island resort staff provide an incredible level of service and accommodation making our short time there extremely pleasant.
In the pursuit to experience everything Oslob had to offer, we set out to go whale shark diving. Without a doubt one of the most fun and bizarre experiences to be swimming casually next to such massive creatures, we spent as long as we were allowed in the water. Definitely a new life experience we highly recommend!
