Swim with gentle whale sharks in the clear waters of Lila town through this Bohol whale shark tour. This experience is perfect for animal lovers as you will get to see these majestic animals in their natural habitat. The tour also includes land and boat transfers, the service of guides, and free hotel pick-up and drop-off within Panglao Island or Tagbilaran City. 

This Bohol private tour also comes with free use of snorkeling gear, but you are encouraged to bring your own gear if you have it for health and safety reasons. Also, remember to pack sunblock and an underwater camera if you have one.

Your Lila, Bohol whale shark tour starts when your guide fetches you at 8 AM. From there, you will be driven to the local port, where you will board a boat. You will then start sailing to areas where the whale sharks often feed. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled and listen to your guide as they look for whale sharks. However, remember that since they are migratory animals, there is no guarantee that you'll spot one during your tour. 

If you are lucky to see one in the water, feel free to put on your snorkeling gear and slowly ease into the water. It's best not to jump into the sea to avoid startling the whale sharks while they feed. Remember to keep a safe distance from them, so you don't accidentally hit or step on them while you swim. You can also bring your underwater camera to snap photos of these gentle giants in their natural habitat. 

After swimming with the whale sharks, you will sail back to the local port. From there, you will ride an air-conditioned van back to your hotel. 

Experience swimming with whale sharks off the shores of Lila town on Bohol Island by booking this 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.
