Swim with whale sharks on a full-day tour in Cebu, where you’ll also get a wonderful introduction to the countryside of the southern coast. After swimming and snorkeling with the whale sharks—the largest fish on earth—you’ll enjoy a seafood barbecue by the beach and a stop at the gorgeous Aguinid Falls, all with the convenience of door-to-door transport from Cebu city hotels.

What to Expect
Begin this tour with an early departure from your Cebu hotel, and then watch the sunrise illuminate the landscape during the roughly 3.5-hour drive to Oslob. You’ll pass historic houses, churches, and lush scenery along the way, before receiving a briefing on swimming with whale sharks upon your arrival in Oslob. With your snorkeling gear in place, slip into the water for a fascinating view of Cebu’s native whale sharks, which can grow to more than 40 feet (12 meters) long. After roughly 30 minutes in the water, dry off and refuel with a seafood barbecue lunch by the beach. The final stop of the day is Aguinid Falls, where you can stretch your legs on a hike at the edge of the milky, green-colored water. The tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Our driver was on time (we weren't) and very professional. Had a great chat all the way to oslob, learnt quite a lot of things Google doesn't tell you. Whale shark watching was such an experience. We got in the water and watched them real close. Almost could touch them! But

I was not sure about going because it is a bit polemic. However I have to say that the government has a lot of rules and you can get a fine if you touch them. They are free and just go to the place from 6 to 11 am to be fed, then they go wherever they want. When I was swimming I

Glad I booked through site. Was able to hire waterproof go-pro for 550 pesos. The whale shark site was very busy but the guide took us straight through the crowd to check in and then watched us until we were on the boat. The whale sharks actually bumped into me and it was good

I would recommend this as a good day out, I had some reservations about distressing the whale sharks after reading reviews elsewhere but, although there were a lot of people in the water, there didn't appear to be any problem and the animals themselves are not afraid of getting
