Full description
Travel via private car charter to Oslob where you'll get up close to the friendly whale sharks on your trip to Cebu. This slow-moving filter-feeding carpet shark is one of the largest known fish species - and a true sight to behold. On the trip, get to snorkel and swim with the whale sharks.

To begin your adventure, wake up bright and where you will be picked up in your hotel lobby at 3 AM. Take a scenic drive along the Southern Cebu coastline. Once you arrive in Oslob, get your snorkeling gear and hop in the water for your whale shark encounter.

After a briefing regarding what to look for and basic safety rules, enjoy your time in the beautiful ocean filled with amazing sea creatures. Take your time to get used to the water and snorkeling gears and have a truly unique experience of making friends with Oslob's famous whale sharks. At the end of the experience, enjoy a local lunch to recharge your energy.  Return back to your accommodation in Cebu by around 1-2 PM with a convenient private transfer.
