    definitely worth going for a private car tour as you get to decide on how to want it to be lile (eg food before or after an activity) + its comfortable and you get to snooze since its very early ... anyway it's super awesome seeing the whale sharks! totally worth waking up to see it

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.

    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.
  • kartik 25 Dec 2018
    The experience is worth the distance traveled. About 3 hr journey either side from Cebu city. The guide received us at breakfast spot and took us through the dive experience. Swimming with whale sharks is an awesome experience though they come across as pets then in their natural environment. Waterfalls are beautiful. Worth a visit. Cons - Klook please add the surcharges in the overall expense. Driver haggling for fuel top up (it was 1000 PHP against Appx 800 an mentioned on your voucher), guide asking for extra tips. It’s better to make standard fuel charges and add them to the voucher cost rather than leaving the tourist to bargain with driver. Cheers

    Really awesome experience. Kinda hectic to begin but once I was in the water I forgot about all that. The sharks are amazing
  • Pei Chyi 21 Sep 2018
    It’s a great one! Driver reached before the meeting timing even though we didn’t contact each other before hand! Introduce lot of places to visit, very impressive of their services!

  • Choon Kiat 20 Mar 2019
    It was my first booking with Klook and it was hassle-free. The booking was confirmed instantaneously and the driver turned up on time. It was worth waking up early (pick up at 5am) to see the whale sharks! Truly amazing experience!
  • 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!!!
  • Baranitharan 25 Feb 2019
    It’s was running to see those magnificent creates up close. The falls is fairly good and has less-no water during summer. The ride along the coast itself is a rewarding experience. It costs an additional ~$20 for the fuel which I wish was listed clearly.
  • Eduardo 16 Jan 2019
    very nice experience to be able to swim with the whale sharks, of course only bad thing is you are only allowed 30mins in the water since is a pre arrange system where you get your number and wait to go on the boat into the water. you'll be charge 1,000 pesos for snorkeling if you're a foreigner And 500pesos for local.. Tumalog Fall is beautiful and relaxing, you got the option to be a passenger in a motorcycle since the road is steep and a bit hard to walk for some people, yet it wasn't problem for me to go walking 10mins
  • Princess 25 Apr 2019
    This tour is expensive! On top of the ₱2900 you will shoulder all the other expenses which some could have been inclusive in the package, breakfown as follows: ₱ 800 - car rental; ₱1150 - gas; you’ll load the car back to accommodation; ₱500 - snorkling fee; ₱50 - habal habal to Tumalog Falls which is walking distance (dont take habal!) I dont even know where that ₱2900 is all for. Good thing I had a very assisting driver and breathtaking views and experiences... also, I was assisted to go straight canyoneering (separate fee, of course) since tour only takes 3 hours.
