Can you imagine a better way to spend a day than whale shark watching, snorkelling in turquoise seas, relaxing by the beautiful Tumalog Waterfalls and exploring the historic centre of Oslob? Experience the best of Cebu on this incredible excursion!
Oslob Whale Shark Watching Itinerary
First thing in the morning on the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from Cebu and taken in the direction of Oslob, where you'll arrive around 8 am. Here, you'll enjoy an introduction to the world of whale sharks and to the whale shark watching activity you're about to embark on.
Then, at around 8:30 am, you'll climb into small boats to begin your unique sealife spotting adventure. As well as whale sharks, there are many different species of marine wildlife who spend their mornings in the waters around Oslob.
Spend around half an hour meeting these incredible animals and taking their photos. What's more, the most daring amongst you will have the opportunity to snorkel with them! Get up close and personal with the world's largest fish and interact with them in their natural habitat - a truly unforgettable experience!
After whale shark watching, you'll be taken to Tumalog Waterfall, a natural pool of crystal-clear water surrounded by palm trees and ferns. There will be time here to relax and enjoy the surrounding natural scenery.
Around 11 am, you'll take a well-earned break to renew your energy with a delicious meal of traditional Cebuano dishes at a local restaurant (included).
Full of tasty food, you'll continue to the area of Cebu island with the most history: Oslob Patrimonial Park. Explore the ruins of the Cuartel, the barracks built by Spanish police in 1860, and the watchtower, or Baluarte, which was used in the 18th century.
You'll also visit Boljoon Church, built in the 18th century, and visit the Carcar Shoe Expo, a market full of locally handmade shoes.
Your day trip will come to an end around 1 pm, when you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
