Swimming with the whale sharks was better than my already high expectations! Due to flooding the days before we were unable to do the canyoneering but we’re taken to snorkel and see the sardines and turtles instead. Our driver Jave was the best, super friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend if visiting Cebu

The day was nothing short of incredible. It started with 3am pickup. Then a long drive to Oslob. It was unexpectedly one of the most amazing things I have ever done. Then we went canyoneering which we did not expect to be as challenging as it was but it was incredible none the less.

The driver, Rey picked us up promptly on time in a very nice SUV, he even stopped to let us get some coffee before swimming with the whale sharks. He also was great at telling us about the island. Swimming with the whale sharks was definitely a once in a life time opportunity. On to the canyonineering- do it! If you can handle 10k of hiking, swinging from branches, nature made slides abs cliff jumping this is your sport. And it finishes with a lunch! Yes yes yes to this tour option
