Our hotel informed us that this was the best place to see the tarsiers. They are animals that like their own space and are all spread around the park separately. The guides have to look for them each morning before opening up. The tour only...More
There are a few tarsier conservations on the island and we went to this. We also met the person labelled as the “Tarsier man” who discovered a new species endemic to the island which was nice.
Before going in we had our guide explain who...More
These primates are small and may not be obvious to see. The local volunteers will guide you but be sure to refrain from talking out loud for they love quiet places. Bring insect repellents when you go there.
Tarsiers are the world's smallest primate, roughly 3.5 inches long with an equally long tail. In other words, super tiny! They're also nocturnal, which means that when you see them during the day, they're curled up asleep. It's interesting to see them even in that...More
I love visiting this place every time I go to Bohol. The Tarsiers are truly protected here with proper scientific management. Educational displays and movies are available to view. Tucked away in the interior of Bohol, off the beaten tourist path. They give you a...More
Date Visited: 24 October, 2018
Getting there: private van from Alona Beach for the day 2000p
Experience: excellent experience with lots of closeup viewing. We saw 4 Tarsiers. We found the signs as you enter the Sanctuary from the car park the most informative about...More
The Tarsier Conservation in Corella is better than the one I last visited. Corella was smaller but you can easily see the Tarsier because they are nearer to the walking area for tourists. The place was less congested than the one in Loboc.
Arrived at the place mid afternoon and was amazed to see probably several hundred visitors, I am off season too, across the car park to a ticket office and a lecture on how to behave, which apparently the Chinese do not have to observe. silence...More

Both sights you mentioned are in Bohol.
The tarsier sancturary is not that far away from Tagbilaran (20-25 minutes?), but you will have to hire a driver to take you there anyway. Chocolate Hills are little further into the centre of the island, so the drive (by car, not tricycle!) can take about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
We hired a driver and paid him to be our guide for the whole day. Went to see tarsier first, then straight to Chocolate Hills. We stopped at some other locations on the way back (man-made forrest + one little zoo with giant snakes and butterflies). We managed to do all that in about 5 or 6 hours.
There are several ferry companies that run between Cebu and Bohol. I used the SuperCat ferry that runs three times per day, each way (nice, comfortable fast ferry). The journey takes 2 hours to the Tagbilaran ferry... More
There are several ferry companies that run between Cebu and Bohol. I used the SuperCat ferry that runs three times per day, each way (nice, comfortable fast ferry). The journey takes 2 hours to the Tagbilaran ferry port.
You could potentially visit Bohol as a day trip. The earliest SuperCat ferry to depart Cebu is at 8.45am (arriving 10.45am) and the last ferry to depart Tagbilaran is at 5.25pm. But that would result in a rushed tour of Bohol. You'd be better to include a one-night stay in Tagbilaran. Or, if you prefer a more touristy, beach location, select a hotel near the beach on Panglao Island, just a few km from Tagbilaran.
As has already been noted, the Tarsier Sanctuary is an interesting visit, but not worth a long ferry ride just to see that one attraction. Much better to book a full-day taxi tour that will also include the Chocolate Hills and some of the other attractions.
Hope this helps.
