Depart early at 3:00 AM and make the 4-hour drive from Cebu to Oslob. Arrive at Tan-awan, and pick up your snorkeling equipment so you can swim with the whalesharks. Sit down for a brief introduction before you go into the water. Enjoy as your swim with the biggest fish in the world.
After your whaleshark watching and swimming, you will have the opportunity to visit a secluded private island near Oslob called Sumilon Island. Their 5 star amenities are one of the best in the Philippines. Enjoy water activities as they prepare a sumptuous plated lunch. You can also visit Its sandbar as this is well known for its changing shapes and shifting locations around the island, depending on the season. On the island, there is a natural lagoon teeming with high mangroves. There are also natural caves where fishermen used to seek refuge. On the southside, a lighthouse rests on a protected tree park. Beside it is a “Baluarte”, a historical watchtower built as part of a warning system to thwart slavers and marauders in the 19th century. Head back to your hotel in Cebu City proper after a tiring but enjoyable day.
