What people are saying about Badian

This was a very good tour! My pick-up time for my day tour ended up being an hour earlier, but I was provided notice that it was to help ensure the whale shark watching experience would actually happen since there were so many tourists - I appreciated that! My driver picked me up on-time and arrived at Oslob as expected. The whale shark experience was unbelievable - truly amazing! The sandbar wasn't great - the photos don't show you that there are many other people on the beach and it takes away from the experience. The Moalboal snorkeling activity was awesome - I had a great guide who ensured I'd have a memorable time...he took care of making sure I was comfortable, but also that I'd have amazing GoPro photos and videos. Things to keep in mind: This activity is private and not a shared experience. Bring a towel and, if you want, an extra set of dry clothes. Bring your own GoPro for the whale shark experience; your guide can easily rent a GoPro for the snorkeling experience.

An absolute must for anyone coming to the Philippines. We saw 5-6 whale sharks and were constantly surrounded by whale sharks during the approximately 45 minutes in the sea. The Kawasan Canyoneering afterwards is in no way inferior to the experience. A combination of adrenaline and one of, if not the most beautiful panorama I have experienced in the Philippines with incredibly clear and crystal blue water. It was worth every penny and getting up early. For the Kawasan Canyoneering I chose the zipline option, which I recommend to everyone as it further enriches the experience and saves you a 30-40 minute hike to the starting point.

We loved the canyoneering tour! The water was absolutely beautiful, the cliff jumps were fun, the guides were friendly and took awesome photos for us. Our driver, Jave, drove us to and from Moalboal from Mactan and he was great! It was a long day of driving but definitely worth the long drive. The sardine run was neat to see the big schools of fish and some turtles! Snorkelling area was a bit busy with people but it was still good to see. Would highly recommend.

The activity is incredibly fun, from witnessing the sardines in Moalboal to Canyoneering in Badian. All the tour guides are so friendly, they always ensure you capture amazing pictures and prioritize your safety throughout the tour. We highly recommend this experience to everyone! It’s a must-visit in Cebu, and the driver is extremely patient. We felt completely safe traveling to Moalboal and Badian and back to our hotel.

Fantastic tour, very convenient with the pick up/drop off and all the activities went smoothly. The sunrise view at Osmena peak was incredible and the canyoneering was very organised. Highly recommend!
