WHALE SHARKS WATCHING OR… SWIMMING WITH THEM
Tanawan, Oslob, Cebu
Tanawan, Oslob in the south eastern part of Cebu is now famously known as the site for experiencing the rare sight of amazing whale sharks diving in and out and playing in the ocean. It is during the good weather, when the water is clear that these whale sharks come out.
They’re huge and massive and are never known to be fiercely violent. So you can swim with them.. subject to government rules … No feeding No approaching them less than 5 feet. Cameras can’t have a flash… but you can swim with them, if you’ve got what it takes!
Within the municipality of Oslob in the province of Cebu is the enchanting island of Sumilon. It’s a 24-hectare expanse bordered on one side by the clear oceanic waters with varying hues of aquamarine and white sand beaches in the different areas of this coral island. Created in 1974 as a marine sanctuary, it is, in the Philippines, the first protected island with its marine life by Siliman University Marine Reserve of Dumaguete City, in the neighboring province of Negros Oriental.
This waterfall, or waterfalls we may say is a truly raw beauty, consist of different segments, meaning the water flows in different directions before it descend in a common stream. The water really is oozing with coolness; you will enjoy dipping on its stream and climb its sticky and mouldy bedrock which are not so steep. The surrounding is magnificently virgin; no other sign of activities could make the travellers be disturbed and the falls had multiple steps where the water cascades gently.

One of the best outdoor experience, Thank you for amazing Tour🍃👣👍 #CebuRepublic
My friends and I took two day trips with Island Travelxp tours: Mactan Island hopping (8 people + 2 children) and Oslob Whaleshark watching + Kawasan Falls (4 people). I was at first skeptical because I couldn’t find anyone recommending Island Travelxp tours on TripAdvisor; I had only stumbled upon their website on google, which looks very detailed and informational. We decided to give them a try first for Mactan Island Hopping (a little cheaper) and then if it was good, also go with them for the Oslob Whaleshark the next day. I am impressed by how professional the company is; and how they are very clear and up front with their prices. The pickup car was never late. The drivers were great, the people were nice. Both tour guides on both days stayed with us the whole time. They do the best they can to offer you the same experience at local costs. Highly recommend Island Travelxp tours (They are the same company as Cebu Republic which has been around for a while).
Had a wonderful experience with my travel buddies with the great arrangement from Island Travelxp Tours. Booked a 2 days south cebu tour and very happy with the services of the driver and tour guides. Memorable trip indeed.
Very accommodating! Our last coron trip was indeed a blast because of them. Kung gusto niyo magtravel around ph guys, I would really recommend you to contact Island Travelxp Tours. Its so lit!

I wasnt able to experience the island tour because of the gale warning. Instead they just tour us to 2 of the beach in El Nido which is also nice too. The tour guides are friendly and accomodatinh too.
the El Nido tour was a breathtaking experience. I never expected to see places like these here in our own backyard. Thank you Island Travelxp Tours for that wonderful adventure!
Very happy with the services of the drivers. Thank you Island Travelxp Tours for the arrangements, we had a wonderful time during our trip in cebu.
