Discover the fascinating town of Oslob, Cebu in this full-day historical, sightseeing, and whale shark-watching tour. Perfect for those seeking a great getaway in one of Cebu’s idyllic municipalities, this tour is inclusive of air-conditioned car transfers, boat transfers, all entrance fees, a whaleshark snorkeling experience with snorkeling gear rental, and the services of a guide.

The tour begins after you have been picked up from the airport or your Cebu accommodation. Oslob sits along the Cebu Strait, near the southern extremity of the island of Cebu. Your first stop of the day will be the Oslob Cuartel. However, you may also upgrade your tour to include a visit to Osmena Peak in time for the sunrise before heading to the cuartel. 

The Oslob Cuartel dates back to the 1860s and was built with thick coral stones that are still standing today. You will also visit some of Oslob’s old churches and ruins before doing the whaleshark snorkeling activity.

Whale shark watching in Cebu began in 2011 and quickly became famous throughout the world when word spread on multiple social networks. Since then, a large number of visitors, both domestic and foreign, have flocked to Oslob to swim with these gentle giants. You will be given snorkeling gear which you can use during the tour. Be sure to not disturb these majestic creatures for everyone's safety.

Before lunch, you will be going to Sumilon Island. It is home to the country's first marine protected area, which was established in 1974. Its waters are also ideal for snorkeling or diving, and those who are lucky enough may see black-tip sharks swimming in the region.

You will also visit the miraculous Simala Church. The church became famous in 1997 and is frequently filled with visitors who want to offer prayers and wishes to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Before going home, you can try Carcar’s best pork chicharon and buy some souvenir items at the Pasalubong Center.

Have an exciting Oslob adventure in Cebu with this private full-day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.

DISCLAIMER: Seeing whale sharks during this tour is NOT GUARANTEED. Whale sharks are migratory animals and even during the whale shark season, there is a possibility that you may not encounter one during your tour.
