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.

    Good experience!!!! Nice to see whalesharks
  • 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!
  • Chin Yun 15 Sep 2018
    Oslob whale shark watching was a great experience, and being able to see whale sharks swimming in front of my eyes was such a nervous but nice experience. Our driver, Bogart was a nice and experienced driver, he introduced places to us along the way to Oslob. Overall, this activity is a must to try when visiting to cebu:)
  • Muhammad Hisham Bin 10 Sep 2018
    I rate it 4 stars because of the 1400php of petrol that I need to pay. It was stated on the website that I will have to pay up to 800php but 1400 - 800 = 600php more (which equates to an approximate SGD$16). My honest suggestion, maybe to provide competition for klook, go for kkday.com instead. For the approximate same price you pay (without the petrol and kkday is cheaper by probably SGD$3-4), they provide same deal. Most importantly you don't need to top up the petrol after the activity.

    I have mixed feelings about this one- it was a really cool and amazing experience to be in the waters with the whale sharks but they’re not in their natural habitat. The locals feed them and they’re very near to the shore. There were also boards of tourists so I can imagine that this feeding is done everyday and for hours. This can’t be natural for these wild animals. In terms of the logistics of this tour, the driver was on time, the activity was only about 45 mins and the waterfall was just ok. Most of the time will be spent in the car and on the road with traffic. The magic was in the 30 mins in the water with the whale sharks.

    The booking was very easy to use. The location was very busy once we had arrived. We had to wait two hours for our boat, but we had a good time. Our driver was very helpful and was willing to personalize our tour.

    Amazing experience with these gentle giants. Would highly recommend.
  • Ferdinand 18 Aug 2018
    Our Driver Daryl is the best hes always assisting us in all our locations hes offering to carry our bags and take picture in all destinations. Hes also saying the prices in all activities. However im expecting Kawason Falls but they suggest us to go to Tumalog Falls with is much better for us with matching FREE FISH SPA. Thank you Klook
  • SITI RAUDAH 15 Aug 2018
    Not too bad - queue was long and we had to wait for at least 2 hours before we managed to watch the whale shark - but the people were nice and we managed to see the whale shark (which was truly a fun experience!)
  • JOSEPH 8 Aug 2018
    Great tour! Driver was on time and knowledgeable about the tour. We didnt have to wait on a line. Whale tour was definitely a great experience. The water fall was beautiful. Will definitely go again and recommend to others.
