Oslob Things to Do

  • Swimming with the whale sharks

    From Cebu City, we caught a a taxi at 3:30am to catch a bus 4 in the morning. The whole trip was a bumpy three hours. After arriving at the resort, we had quick breakfast and then swam with the whale sharks. Snorkeling fee is Php 500 for Filipino and Php 1000 for foreigners. Snorkeling/swimming for 30 minutes includes everything – boat, guide,...

  • Take a dip in Tumalog Falls

    From the whaleshark interaction area, you can ride a trike to send you to the road going to Tumalog Falls. In our case, we paid the trike 300 pesos for back and forth service including waiting time. That's from the lodge to whaleshark interaction, to the Tumalog Falls road then to Sumilon Island Jetty Port and back to the lodge in the...

First stop is the church of the Nuestra Senora de la Immaculada Concepcion. This structure was constructed in the 19th century using polished coral stones.

  • Whaleshark Interaction

    Whaleshark interaction in Oslob is cheaper and hassle-free as compared to the one in Donsol, Sorsogon. We tried whaleshark interaction last April 2013 in Donsol but opted to go island hopping instead as we were informed that there was only one whaleshark sighted for the past 4 weeks. In Oslob, the whaleshark is just 5mins away from the shore. They...

  • Tumalog falls

    After the whale shark watching, my friends and I went to see this Tumalog falls which is only about 10mins away from the resort. We hired a van from the Brumini beds and resort and paid 500php. The van can only bring us at the entrance since the road from there is very steep. Entrance fee costs 20php. Going down the mountain is not a problem so it...

    cebu city to Oslob

    by haka5 Written Mar 28, 2012

    The ride to/from Oslob from Cebu city takes approximately 2-3 hours depending on traffic. We hired a taxi near our hotel for $90. We requested that he pick us up at our hotel at 2:30am. We got his cell # and a photo of his license. The driver promptly collected us at the appointed time and stayed around to drive us back. We made a quick stop in Carcar to buy chicharron from a stand. It is well worth it! The best I've ever tasted. This was a regular economy car taxi cab, the four of us were a bit cramped but, we were too tired to care.
