Exclusive Oslob Whale Shark Encounter, swimming at Sumilon Island & Moalboal Tour

One of Cebu’s most exciting tourist destinations is the whale shark in Oslob. Locally, these whale sharks are referred to as “butanding.” If you visit Tanawan Town in the southern region of Cebu, you can have a close encounter with these animals and enjoy it in this area. It is understandable why Oslob has become a popular travel destination for many visitors to Cebu given its proximity to the city center (approximately three hours of travel). You may have heard about the renowned whale shark, and you absolutely must see it for yourself.

One of the unique islands in the Philippines is Sumilon Island, which is situated near Oslob, Cebu. The Sumilon Marine Reserve was formed in 1974 to protect the island’s thousands of fragile coral reefs and its abundant seagrass meadows, which are home to many different types of marine life. This reserve includes other seascapes near Sumilon Island that are also in charge of protecting whale sharks. The island is known as Sumilon Island because it once served as a haven for fishermen fleeing the frequent, powerful typhoons that hit the Philippines. It is also known as the first marine park in the Philippines.

Unsure about the significance of the renowned sardines you’ve heard about? Moalboal is ideal for snorkeling and exploring marine flora and fauna. This small town is famous for its sardine run, where you can swim with millions of sardines all year! It is also home to many sea turtles, which swim calmly along its shores alongside the sardines. On Panagsama Beach in Moalboal, there is an option to swim through sizable schools of sardines just 20 meters from the coast. You may swim with the sardines here every day of the year, seven days a week, unlike anywhere else! In each school, there are more than a million sardines. So at Moalboal, snorkeling and swimming with sardines are unique experiences. 

Book today and be amazed by the whale sharks in Oslob and the sardines in Moalboal!
