What To Expect

Ready for an adrenaline rush? Travel via private car charter to Oslob where you'll get up close to the friendly whale sharks on your trip to Cebu. This slow-moving filter-feeding carpet shark is one of the largest known fish species - and a true sight to behold. On the trip, you will not only get to snorkel and swim with the whale sharks, but also participate in the feeding. You will need to wake up bright and early for this adventure and get to your hotel lobby in time for your 5:00am pick up. The trip starts with a scenic drive along the Southern Cebu coastline. Once you arrive in Oslob, get your snorkeling gear (provided if you select the Snorkeling and Swimming Fee add-on) and hop in the water for your whale shark encounter. Afterwards, you can opt to discover the hidden gem that is Tumalog Falls, and then enjoy lunch at your own expense, before heading back to your hotel.

  • Sumit 11 Feb 2019
    I had booked 3 vehicles by mistake for a group of 3 people. They were very nice to point that out to me and I contacted Klook for a refund for the remaining 2. They replied very promptly and the refund was made swiftly! The pickup time was changed from 5am to 3:30am and they communicated it very effectively and on time. The driver was there sharp at that time and the ride was great. We reached there by 6:30am (you can have a good nap in the car) and saw a massive queue waiting to get their numbers to go for the swimming activity. Our driver had a some good contacts and we managed to get ahead and jump the queue in no time! We just had to wait 15 mins! The activity itself was amazing and swimming with those gentle giants was out of the world. They also took us to Tumalog falls.

    This trip is very nice and good experience.The driver is very friendly .our tour guide is very helpful and good smile.Even travel go and return 6 hours ,it is very good experience and memorable to watch whale shark.
  • BEAUMONT 9 Feb 2019
    I don’t give 5 stars because of the following reasons: No communication was made to us before the tour about the pick up time even though it is clearly stated that this will be reconfirm by the local operator. So I assumed it would be 5 am as mentioned in the description. Our drivers arrived at 3.30am at our hotel!!! Obviously we were still sleeping and had to rush to get prepared and everything. Then comes the drive to the destination: no matter the speed limit being 40/60 or 80, our reckless driver was constantly at 100 missing to kill few people on the way. Ok then the activity: this is the second time I was doing the whale watching in Oslob. Last time was 8 years ago and I can tell you a lot changed in 8 years. Be prepared to wait! Despite the fact that they are better organised due to the afflux of tourists, I felt that the interaction with the whale was different as there are so many boat for only a handful of whales. My point of view is that they accept too many people to visit on the same day but it was still a nice experience. Also you can rent underwater camera for 550 pesos with transfers of the pictures on your phone. This is also an improvement as before the cameras were not as good and they were giving you a CD. Then we went to the waterfall which was very nice and back to the city. Here also be prepared for the long ride as the traffic is atrocious in the afternoon. Basically it took us 2h to go there and 4 hours to come back to the city.

    Driver was very friendly, but overall experience seemed disorganized. We waited 3 hours once we got there, and couldn’t do falls due to weather. Overall so-so.

    Really awesome experience. Kinda hectic to begin but once I was in the water I forgot about all that. The sharks are amazing
  • CHEE HONG 10 Feb 2019
    Pick up was on time at 5am from our hotel. We slept & rest well in the comfort of the sedan car during the 3 hour long ride to Olsob. The tour was well organised; we met up with a guide who first organised the whale shark watching for us (it was certainly v v v crowded) and having a guide helps to navigate through the Chinese New Year crowd.
  • Raissa 4 Feb 2019
    Smooth booking process, received a confirmation email from the tour the night before detailing the name of the driver and plate number for pick up. He was on time (early, even!) and drove safely throughout the whole day. The tour guide was well organized and managed to have a nice experience.
  • KANOKWAN 31 Jan 2019
    Driver(JeyR) was terrible. He drive very fast and not safety. Local guide is good.
  • Siu Hong janicson 21 Jan 2019
    The tour is good! The only problem is that you need to get ready yourself to stay in the car for totally 7.5 hrs, 3.5hrs outbound and 4hrs inbound. We spent 60mins for whale shark and 30mins for the water fall, and 60mins for breakfasts. This made the tour in 10hrs! But the Whale-shark watch experience was fabulous!!!
