Spending your weekend (even weekdays) visiting the famed Oslob whale sharks, the Simala Shrine in Sibonga, and the beauty of Cebu’s uphill destinations is quite a privilege only a few are gifted to do and experience. This once-in-a-lifetime tour organized by IslandTravelXP Tours will take you further and farther where the adventures are.

On Day 1, the tour will start at 12 noon after your arrival in the “Queen City of the South” as you will visit Cebu City’s uphill attractions during this time. On Day 2, more exciting destinations are at stake. At 4:30 AM, you will be picked up from your hotel going to Oslob, a town just south of Cebu City where the friendly whale sharks abound. By 7:30 AM, your group is expected to arrive in Oslob, one of Cebu’s most visited places. This unique experience will take you to Tanawan, Oslob, in the southeastern part of Cebu. This paradise on earth is now known as the site for experiencing the rare sighting of amazing whale sharks swimming and playing in the ocean.

The whale sharks are huge, massive, and are never known to be fiercely violent. You can swim with these giant sea creatures while your companion takes pictures and selfies! Your moment with the whale sharks takes less than 90 minutes but it sure is your most memorable one!

At 10 AM, the tour will take you to Simala Shrine in Sibonga, a town in Cebu located just an hour away from downtown Cebu City. By 3 PM, you are on your way back to Cebu City after another day of a fascinating tour in Cebu’s most popular attractions to date.
On Day 3, you have free time where you can shop, dine, and explore more Cebu City before the 12-noon check-out from your hotel.

What to expect in Oslob Whaleshark, Simala Shrine, and Cebu Uphill

The 3D/2N Oslob Whaleshark + Simala Shrine + Cebu Uphill Tour is a private tour provided with exclusive transportation and a courteous guide/driver. Visit Cebu’s breathtaking tourist spots such as the Temple of Leah, TOPS, the holy Taoist Temple, the Sirao Flower farm, Buwakan ni Alejandra, and other historical sites worth seeing, comprising the Cebu Uphill Tour.

Moreover, if you haven’t experience whale shark watching before, feel the excitement of seeing a group of friendly creatures as big as a bus. You can also snorkel and swim with them while your companion takes your pictures with these remarkable creatures.

On the other hand, the Simala Shrine is a much-visited temple in the province located within the Monastery of the Holy Eucharist in Sibonga, Cebu. The shrine is run by Marian monks. On a huge, beautifully-designed wooden altar sits the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary encased and painted in gold. This is the place where, sometime in 1998, it is said that the image of the Virgin Mary shed real tears. Today, the people continue to believe in its miraculous healing powers as the testimonial letters of healed people are fastened near the altar.

The feeling of trying and seeing new things are amazing! I got to ride a ferry and see the beauty of Cebu City. -- Angelica" WE ARE EXCITED to go back again with our friends and families. Thank you for the hospitality that you have showed.
