    All about the Oslob Whale Shark Watching and Kawasan Falls.

    An amazing adventure in Cebu, where you will be able to swim with the friendly whale sharks in Oslob and discover the fascinating Kawasan Falls.

    In the morning around 4.00am, you will be picked up from your hotel in Cebu or Mactan and driven for 3 hours south, bound for Oslob where you will have the opportunity to see whale sharks up close and personal.

    Upon arrival proceed for a quick briefing and registration at Tan-awan, then set off in search of the whale sharks. When we locate them, you can enter in the water and swim with them for a limited time of 30 minutes. To be underwater with these enormous, gentle creature is one of the ultimate bucket-list experiences.

    Return to the mainland and proceed to Badian which is the jump off to the trekking to Kawasan Falls. Walk for about 20-30 minutes to the base of Kawasan Falls.
    Kawasan Falls is a beautiful three-stage cascade with clear turquoise water. It’s the perfect place for a cool and refreshing dip.

    Lunch at Kawasan before heading back to Cebu. Arrive in Cebu around 5.00pm.
