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.

    I can complain about the long trip (3 hours each way), the heat and the flock of tourists wanting to get to the boats, but in reality all of that is pale in comparison to the wonderful experience of 30 minutes swimming with the whale sharks. Such beautiful placid creatures. This is a must tour for anyone visiting Cebu. Of course, get the snorkeling option as this is the best way to get really close to the butanding - like, right beside them!
