Full description
Discover the pristine beaches and crystal clear blue water of Sumilon Island on this private full-day tour from Cebu. Rise early, meet your driver at your hotel lobby in Cebu City, Mactan, or Lapu-Lapu City, and then head to Oslob city. From there, take a boat from a small port to arrive near Sumilon Island, then enjoy the island and its surroundings for approximately 4-5 hours.

Explore the island's natural lagoon protected by mangroves and watch for local wildlife. Sunbathe on clean beaches and swim in the clear blue water. If you're lucky, you might spot a turtle or wild whale shark. Once your time around the island is up, head back to your accommodation in Cebu City, Mactan, or Lapu-Lapu City.

If you're seeking an adventure, extend your trip by swimming with whale sharks before the trip to Sumilon Island. After a briefing about what to look for and basic safety rules, embark on a once-in-a-lifetime swimming experience with amazing whale sharks. Snorkel and swim alongside these gentle giants in their beautiful natural habitat.

For a relaxing day trip, select the option with whale shark swimming and Sumilon Island beach resort access. After swimming with the whale sharks, enter the one and only resort on Sumilon Island where you can enjoy a lunch buffet, water activity gear rental, and the facilities within the resort. Freely use the lagoon swimming pool, the beach, the kiddie park, and sunbeds.
