Awake at 4am, shit!! Haha time to get ready and go Diving with the Thresher sharks. We were on the boat by 430, at the site by 5 and in the water at 530am. Went down the line to 16 meters and saw a Thresher shark pretty well right at the start! So exciting!!! They are the most incredible looking sharks, the way there tails move as they swim through the water is amazing. We saw 4 in total and they are not too shy, they were happy to come up rather close to you. We swam around a small bit then over the wall and saw 2 white tip reef sharks chilling out in the bottom. Awesome experience. We were very happy we made the trip up there to see them!
We were back at the Resort at 7am so we had a swim in the pool and chilled out. We had an awesome breakfast at the resort before packing up and leaving. They had undercharged us 1000P and we only realized when we were halfway to the pier so we had to run back and sort them out, Good Carmer!
We got the Ferry boat back at 10am and caught the 11 o'clock bus back to Cebu. There were 2 buses there waiting to leave but one didn't have air con, we took the Aircond one as it was really hot and was only 10P more. Unfortunately it took 4.5 hours instead of 3.5 so we were late to meet Luke and Emma at the Southern Bus Terminal.
Luckily they had waited for us and it was so nice to see them! We got the 4pm bus together to Oslob 3.5 hours away. It went really fast though, as we chatted most the way!!!
Took us awhile to find a place to stay as a lot of places were already booked out. But we got a really good place with only us there, our own room, bathroom and lounge. It was like an apartment, Esters Place Casa Bonita Inn 600P.
Later we all had a drink together before calling it a night as we were totally buggered! :)
