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.

    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.

    Canyoneering is a must when coming to Cebu! It was a brilliant experience swimming with the whale sharks.
  • Carl 4 Feb 2019
    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.

    We had so much fun enteracting with the whale shark and canyoneering at badian. Our guides are good they really helped us all throughout the course and our lunch is ready when we arrived.

    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 activity was poorly conducted, especially for the whale watching. Left cebu at 3.15, arrived at 5.30. Waited until 10 to swim with the whale sharks. Was not given any information during this period. After swimming with the whale sharks, could not find the driver. Waited and searched for 20mins... Proceeded to the next activity This is where things get much better. Proceed to canyoneering, 1hour drive. Ate simple lunch included in the package, and it was fantastic. People were friendly and food was rather wholesome. Met David our guide and went on the adventure. David is full of energy and rather smart when he came up with an idea to allow my gopro to float. Reduce the risk of losing it. Canyoneering was honestly quite tough. Do be careful. Equipment and shoes were good. Canyoneering from 1230 to 4. Went to nearby town for a quick meal and shopping and went back by 2030. Full exhausting day. If possible, would highly recommend starting earlier at 2am. This puts you much earlier in the queue for whale sharks as all tour companies do pick up from 3am and all jam at the whale shark waiting area. Only downside with starting earlier is the water can be colder. But for a 30min swim, it's much more bearerable than a 3 to 5 hour wait. Good luck.

    Shark watching was great but I wouldn’t do it again, especially with the long, annoying wait that it involves. We sat there from 6am until 9:30am before we were able to go for a 30 minute swim. I’m not sure 3hr drive from Cebu is worth it if you just do the shark swim alone. Canyoneering adventure was amazing! That’s my primary reason for 5 star rating. Even though it rained mostly and muddy descent down was a bit worrisome, I’d do it again in a heartbeat! I’d suggest to wear COMFORTABLE water shoes and have a SMALL waterproof bag. Be careful with the large rocks and bring small first aid kit, containing rubbing alcohol and band aids, to treat scrapes and blisters. Chances are you or someone in your group will need need it. Always listen to your tour guides, their experience is priceless! We had a guide for just the two of us and it was great! They seem to have one tour guide for up to 4 people max, keeping the group nice and small, which gives you that private tour feel. Overall, the tour was great! Brace for a long drive and wear a seatbelt even in the back seat!

  • Eric 8 Feb 2019
    One disappointing episode happened: when we returned from the trip to canyoneering center, we put our GoPro at the center and when we came back our GoPro was gone (stolen). We asked all staff and no help at all. Finally we have to call the police of local municipality. We had all the good memory saved in the camera and please Klook help to investigate and try your best to help us to get it back.
