    The whale shark was majestic. Personnel on boat was helpful and even volunteer to help us to take photos underwater. However the waiting time is too long, suggest you have a meal before popping by.

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.

    We've had a wonderful experience on this tour! Our driver's name is Julito. It was a comfortable and pleasant 3+ hrs ride each way. We had 1 stop over at a gasoline station for toilet break each way. The whaleshark experience was fantastic! Tumalog Falls is beautiful and refreshing! The long ride was all worth it. At the end I paid for the expected refuel charge of around Php1,500. Highly recommended!
  • Denise Ruth 18 Jun 2018
    It was so convenient. The driver Jolito was very helpful. The whale sharks where majestic.
  • DHIRAJ 11 Jun 2018
    Our appointed driver Arnel was very professional and friendly, had a good conversation all the way. He got us on time for the Whale Shark watching , got the tickets and got us in the queue. Post the Whale shark activity we went to Tumalog falls and then back on our journey back to Cebu. Started at 5am and back at 4pm at our hotel. All as advertised , Arnel informed at the start of the fuel refill at the end of trip which was another PHP 1400.00. Great experience with Island Trek Tours.
  • Claudio 8 Jun 2018
    Everything was good, except that you need to update the gas price, instead of 800 for the Sedan it was 1400php almost the double and I was alone if the car was full it would be more

    Thank you for choosing Klook and taking time to leave us a review! We are very sorry to hear that you had to experience such a situation. Since the gas fee is depending on the situation, we will surely raise this matter to the product manager and local operator for further improvement. Thank you once again for your valuable time spent in leaving us a review.

    The Place was bit far. However you can see the whale very closely. Also you can swim with Whale.
  • Matthew 14 May 2018
    This was a really cool experience, great driver, comfortable car. Something worth noting, though- you are expected to pay for gas/petrol to refuel the car to full once the day is over, for which you will need cash. It would be nice if Klook would mention this in the description of the voucher.
  • Angella 2 May 2018
    Kuya driver was on time at the pick up place and he was also kind, he helped us through out the whole tour. The tour itself was amazing! Will definitely come back to Cebu :)
  • Ching Kiat 7 Apr 2018
    Great service from the driver, the journey was really smooth and the guide advised for us to get there earlier as it was a peak season which was a right decision!
