Written by Alan Jay on . Posted in Cebu Day Tours

Oslob Whale Shark (Butanding) Watching Tour – Nestled in the Southern Part of Cebu, Oslob is some 115kms (3+ hours by road) from Cebu City and is now famous for its Whale Shark Watching. We are now offering this great activity as one of our fantastic day tours in Cebu.

An early start is needed to really enjoy this tour with pick-up from your hotel being 5am. Sit back and relax as you enjoy the drive to Oslob.

Once you arrive you will need to regsiter and take a short orientation where the do's and dont's will be explained to you. From here you will be given a life jacket and escorted to one of the many small boats that will paddle you out to where the Whale Sharks can be seen swimming gracefully through the clear waters (around 100m offshore).

Snorkeling from the boat is available, while more expensive, does allow you to experience the grace and beauty of these beautiful marine creatures "Butanding" as they glide by in their natural habitat.

After you are finished in Oslob you will head back to Cebu City stopping off at Tumalog Falls (optional). The drive back takes you through some beautiful scenery and the Driver will happily stop should you see a great photo opportunity along the way.

You can have a snack / early lunch at Oslob, the driver can assist / recommend somewhere to eat, this will be at your expense.
