Explore Cebu and travel to Oslob, Sumilon Island, and Pescador Island with this tour. This 16-hour tour will allow you to watch Cebu whale sharks and explore a waterfall in Oslob, enjoy the sandbar on Sumilon Island, and swim in the waters of Pescador Island. The tour includes transfers using an air-conditioned van, the assistance of a tour guide, roundtrip boat transfers, entrance fees, a light breakfast, and lunch. This is a shared tour, but if you want a more personal experience, you can upgrade it to a private one. A private tour will also give you flexibility for your pick-up time. Please note that this tour is not available on Mondays. 

Your tour will start once you have met up with your guide. You will be picked up between 3 AM to 4 AM. If you are booked in a hotel or resort in Cebu City or Mactan Island, your guide will pick you up in the morning. Otherwise, you need to meet up with them at an agreed-upon spot. You’ll then head to your boat so you can go to your first stop, the Oslob whale-watching area in Oslob.

When you get there, you will start your Oslob whale shark tour. You can get closer to the whale shark by jumping in the water and swimming and snorkeling. Keep in mind to be careful with your movements so as not to harm the whale sharks. You’ll then head to Tumalog Falls, which is still in Oslob. This Tumalog Falls tour is a must-try as its towering falls are not only stunning, but the shallow turquoise pool at the bottom is the perfect place for a quick and refreshing dip.

After exploring Oslob, you’ll go on a Sumilon Island tour and spend your time in its famous sandbar. Here, you can just chill or swim in the waters, but remember to put on sunblock as there is no shade in the sandbar.

Your last stop for this tour is Pescador Island. For this Pescador Island tour, you can swim and snorkel in the island’s waters, and if you’re lucky, you can even spot turtles or witness a majestic Moalboal sardine run where you can see thousands of sardines move together as one.

After your tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel or resort in Cebu City or Mactan Island or at the designated meetup spot. 

Visit some of the top natural attractions of Cebu when you book this tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.

DISCLAIMER: Seeing whale sharks and turtles during this tour is NOT GUARANTEED. While your guide will try their best to assist you in spotting these creatures, their behavior may sometimes be unpredictable, and there is a possibility that you may not encounter them during your tour.
