    Booked the package via Klook and got the contact number for the person-in charge: Mike. Attentive and offer all the answers for my queries. On the trip day, the driver, Dione, picked us up on time at 3am. It was about 2.5 hours drive to Oslob. Once arrived, everything was arrange smoothly. Need to wait about 20-30 minutes only in queue (sitting, under proper canopy), which is nice, most probably because it is weekday, and we arrived quite early. The experience is one of a kind. This is the closest you can get with shark whale i think. But keep in mind that this is a well-planned attraction. Meaning, the whale are feeds at the designated area, and all the boats will surround it. Some might think its unnatural and against the nature of the animal. I choose to be open on the debate as there are very minimal contact with the whales, and its actually help to boost the economy of the local people with this attraction. As said earlier by previous commenters, the real experience will be the Canyoneering. Our tour guide is Jon; helpful, attentive and very experience lad. Had a blast throughout the journey. A lot of walking, jumping, and trekking. Various level of jump ranging from 2m to 15m; you can always skip if you don't have the guts to do it. But it will be a lot of fun to try :) The Canyoneering ends with a simple yet breathtaking lunch at their tour centre/office. Clean vehicle and facilities throughout the journey. Everything's are well managed. Two thumbs up.

What To Expect

This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience: a swim with the whale sharks of Oslob, and going canyoneering in the cliffs of Badian, all in one package! Your day starts very early as you are picked up in your hotel for breakfast in Oslob, and then it's right into the water to go whale shark watching and snorkeling with these gentle giants. You'll leave Oslob and the whale sharks for something a little more fast-paced: you'll arrive at Badian for a much-needed lunch before your canyoneering adventure. You'll travel to the jump-off point and swim, climb, rappel and more all over Badian's picturesque cliffs, jumping off cliffs as high as thirty feet! And then you'll visit the beautiful blue waters of Kawasan Falls, where you can take a relaxing swim in the beautiful waters. You'll be brought back to your hotel carrying priceless memories and the thrill of adventure in your heart.

  • SEONKYEONG 17 Mar 2019
    Actually at first, the van was uncomfortable and lunch was bad and small amount. Especially in Oslob, our guide left us behind sometimes. But in Kawasan, local guides were good enough. Thanks! I had a hectic schedule but I cannot forget the experience in Kawasan.

    We were picked up at 3:30am and had a 3.5hr drive to the whale sharks (this long drive was not made clear to us at time of booking although the early start time was). Once there we had to wait 4 hours for our time to swim with the whale sharks. According to our driver this is normal. Again, this time frame is not made clear to us at the time of booking. The canyoning was great. Good fun. Guide was great.
  • Andrea Sheena 9 Feb 2019
    Canyoneering is a must when coming to Cebu! It was a brilliant experience swimming with the whale sharks.
  • Sze Wei 18 Mar 2019
    Is very great tour guide and experiences, most important is valuable.
  • Novia 11 Feb 2019
    I got a bad experience with the tour, not the activity. We already informed to be ready at lobby hotel at 3.30 AM and the driver will pick us up. But the driver didn't show up at the time. We wait until almost 4.15 and finally I decided to call the customer service of the tour, He said that something happen to the driver and couldn't pick us. They was arranged another driver for us, but they also have a customer. So at the end it was not a private tour anymore, but we had paid for the private tour.
  • Celina 10 Mar 2019
    The driver that was allocated to us was very nice, friendly and patient. Had a wonderful time during the canyoneering trip with the 2 friendly guides that were as crazy as us. Great full day trip overall!

    MEMORABLE TRIP!! We had an amazing day with the tour from Klook. First, we were picked up from our hotel by our driver Alison who was very punctual and cool guy at 3AM. Then he drove us to our first location which is Oslob beach to swim with the whale sharks. We reached there at about 5:20AM which was ahead of our schedule due to his driving skills. He was very nice since he always made jokes along the way which made us feel comfortable. Then he told us that he would go and buy tickets for the swimming and we could just wait and sleep more in the car until he called us to get ready, since the wait was about 3 hours. We got out just to take some pictures of the sunrise then there was a huge crowd already waiting so we got back and took a nap. At about 8:30AM he called us to change to our swimming suits and get ready (put on the life jackets) for our number to be called. We changed and wait for about 15 more minutes that we could get on the boat according to the instructions. There was really no actual tour guide for us on the boat, only the men who was rowing the boat that took us out to the whale sharks site. There was a fishy smell when we were close to the whale sharks, since they were feeding them in order for us to see .When we reached the location, they told us to jump down as the whale shark was RIGHT BESIDE US and it was AMAZING, we held on to the bamboo beside the boat and wore the mask as the picture below and the shark was swimming just beneath us and many more small fishes next to it. There were about 4-5 sharks as they would swim in the line of the food. After 30 minutes of swimming, we got up and got back to the car and moved right away. We did not need to change as the driver would put towels on his seats. We arrived at the location in 1 hour, then we had our lunch which was quite okay. Then we put on the shoes they provided (they were quite old) and we got on the motorbikes to get up to the mountain ( 3 people per bike). The motorbike rider was very fast and furious 🤣🤣🤣 so it was a bit scary while riding along the hills. Then we had a VERY little briefing about how to jump and stay safe, listen to our tour guide. Then we started moving down to the Kawasan falls to reach the location for jumping. The way to reach there was REALLY SLIPPERY AND DANGEROUS since there were many rocks and trees. You should always open your eyes wide and listen to your guide. The jumping was VERY FUN and EXCITING, the water was very clear and it looked like you were in some kind of secret beautiful places. We were guided through each cliffs, there were 2m, 4m, 6m, even 15m for you to jump and slides which was worth every penny we paid. You should always be careful while moving and pay attention to the rocks underwater and LISTEN TO YOUR GUIDE, they were very friendly and knew the location so well that they would jump around the rocks. We appreciated the friendliness of the people which made the tour more fun and comfortable throughout the day. Thank you for the experience.

    The driver kuya emmanuel picked us up around 3:30 we were ready so we headed off to oslob. We are still sleepy and he respect that we dont talk to him until we reached oslob a 4hrs travel time. When we reached oslob a guide took us to briefing area before we go to the whale sharks. No lines no anything the guide did everything for us. He gave us a number for us to wait to be called so we can ride a boat going to the whales 30mins swimming with the whales are more than enough. Close encounter you can also rent a under water camera for 550 pesos the small boat drivers will swim and take pictures for u. After oslob we go straight to badian where we met kuya arnel he was nice and polite we liked him a lot trekking is very hard but he make sure we’re safe and he carried my phone all tru the adventure so he can take out photos and videos every jump slide and swim. Kuya arnel made the trip memorable he even lend us money coz we forgot to bring money on the trekking. After the adventure they gave us a little lunch but its good enough for us. Tasty aswell. We used a vios car privately driver drive safely. From bandian to cebu city it took us 6hrs to go back too traffic but were asleep coz were tired.
