Departure is 5 o’clock in the morning


Oslob is a small port town on the southernmost tip of Cebu Island.
It takes about 3 hours to drive to Oslob one way, so we will leave at 5 o’clock in the morning!
Let’s go to bed early the day before!
A private car will pick you up at your hotel.

Toilet time at Kalkar on the way


Toilet time at Kalkar City on the way!
We will give you a Jollibee burger for breakfast here.

Arrive in Oslob


Arrived in Oslob in about 3 hours from departure! !!
Swimming with the whale shark will finally start.


First of all, take a simple course.
The contents are as follows
: -Do not apply sun oil because it affects
whale sharks-Do not touch whale sharks-Do not
give air to whale sharks without permission- Do not yell at
whale sharks



Change into a bathing suit and get ready
to board the small boat.
* Since it is very crowded on Saturdays and Sundays, there may be some waiting time.


You can see whale sharks at a really close distance.
There is no doubt that you will be impressed when you see it live.


Rest assured that the snorkel set will be included in the tour. It takes about 30 minutes to return to the offshore.

If it’s a tour only for whale sharks, then it ends here. But to be honest, it would be a waste to only just swim with the whale sharks for only 30 minutes when you travelled to Oslob for 3 hours!!

That being said, KSB recommends a tour to Sumilon Island after the whale shark.

It is an isolated island that is beautiful enough to compete for 1st or 2nd place in Cebu.That is Sumilon Island.

15 minutes travel by boat from Oslob to Sumilon Island


Departure by boat.
Arrived at Sumilon Island in about 15 minutes.


Do you understand?


Is there a difference in the color of the sea?


The transparency of the water  is completely different from that of the sea near Mactan.

Sandy beach

Depending on the time and timing, sandy beaches can be seen and experienced.
However, you should stop walking barefooted because there are sea urchins in the area, and the ground rocks are rough.
After enjoying Sumilon Island for about an hour, change your clothes and head to the restaurant.

Bodos Bamboo Restaurant


When you come back from Sumilon, change your clothes and have lunch!
A restaurant where you can enjoy a nice resort feeling.
The outside view is the best.
The food is decent (laughs).
If you have time, you can explore the city of Oslob.
The city of Oslob features a very beautiful cityscape reminiscent of Spain.


After eating, it is time to go to the hotel.
I’ll be back in Cebu City at around 6 o’clock.
That’s the schedule.

The tour will consume your whole day, but it is a really recommended tour for those who want to experience the beautiful sea that can only be seen and experienced here. So, please try it.
