DAY 4 – OCTOBER 18, 2016
On our 2nd day, we chose to do some South Cebu activities.
Since It's 3-4 hours road trip going to Oslob, we left at ALT at around 4 in the morning and just caught up on some sleep during the ride. But our driver woke us up to see this beautiful sunrise.

The Tanon Strait lies between the Philippine islands of Negros and Cebus. It is a resting ground for whales, dolphins and home to rare marine plants. As biodiversity comes under threat, locals are getting involved in its protection.
Have you ever seen a dolphin or a whale while cruising? If you have by chance, consider yourself lucky.
These marine mammals are rarely seen nowadays, as their global population has decreased dramatically, mainly because of habitat destruction, pollution, hunting and bycatch, or accidental catching.
While whales are traditionally hunted for food and medicine, dolphins and sea cow, another threatened marine mammal called dugong in the Philippines, often fall victims of bycatch, as they are trapped in nets.
As such, watching whales, dolphins or, in very rare cases, sea cows kept in huge ...
