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.

Hands down one of the best tours I’ve ever been on! Javi was a wonderful guide, super helpful, patient, and even took great photos of me. It is well worth the long drive. The most breathtaking views ever. He tailored the trip to my requests adding an extra stop and taking me to a cafe to eat. Thank you so much an absolutely amazing and unforgettable day!!
