whale shark watching and sumilon island tour

Exciting adventure with Oslob's top tourist attractions in one day tour


Witness the magnificent whale shark as it swims along with your boat and enjoys the tranquil island of Sumilon in this full-day whale shark watching plus Bluewater Sumilon Island day tour package. Sumilon is an island located at the tip of Southern Cebu. The island itself is a marine sanctuary surrounded by crystal clear waters and white sand shifting sandbar.

Together with our well-trained tour guides, your adventure will start as soon as your private air-conditioned vehicle picks you up at your hotel. Then a light native breakfast awaits you in Oslob to prepare for the exhilarating day ahead.

Have the most of your moment with the whale shark as soon as it greets you with a “Goodmorning” beneath the cold waters of Oslob coast. You can also snorkel with them through our add-ons option. Or you may opt to dip in the turquoise pool of Tumalog Falls instead, before heading towards the road of Sumilon island.

Enjoy a day trip full of marine activities like snorkeling, lagoon swimming, fishing, trekking, kayaking, and pedal boating. And have your finest lunch at Pulo restaurant where the cuisines are prepared exclusively in this package. Afterward, you have the rest of the day to continue enjoying the beach or avail some of the other services like bike rental, fins rental, and glass-bottom kayak rental (own expense).
