Swim with whale sharks of Oslob and visit other attractions in Cebu with this day tour inclusive of roundtrip transfers, entrance fees, swimming and snorkeling fees, complete safety gear and snorkeling gear, and services of a driver-guide. Add-on tours are also available for a minimal fee. This Oslob whale shark watching day tour is perfect for those wanting to witness gentle creatures in their natural habitat.

Your journey begins when the driver picks you up from your hotel in Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu, or Cebu City and transports you to Oslob, where you may enjoy the scenic drive to the whale shark viewing location. Here, with the guidance of our local tour guide, you will be swimming and snorkeling with whale sharks. 

Despite their size, Oslob's gentle giants are reputed to be extremely gentle and kind to swim with. You wouldn't even understand how large they are until you see them below the surface of the water, as some of them swim nearly vertically and in a fixed position.

After the whale shark activity, you will go on a Wild Monkey Viewing in Oslob. A little woodland on a hillside in Sitio Bulak, the site is home to at least a hundred monkeys. 

You will then make your way to Cuartel Ruins and Baluarte Ruins next. The Cuartel Ruins was built by the Spaniards in 1860 during the Spanish era when they lived there. It is made of thick coral stones, which made the structure so strong that it even stayed strong through typhoons and earthquakes.

Baluarte Ruins, on the other hand, is a very old watchtower that was built in 1788. The main reason this building was built was to make sure the guards could keep an eye on the area next door. 

Afterward, you can have an optional tour of Tumalog Falls, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Philippines, before heading for a side trip to Boljoon Church. The 400-year-old church is made of coral stones, which makes it the oldest stone church in the Philippines.

Take note that after having lunch at your own expense, you can book add-on tours to Sumilon Island and Aguinid Falls.

Have a fun getaway in Oslob, Cebu, by booking this Oslob day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
