If you want a hassle-free and amazing tour experience in Cebu, you should consider having a travel agency to help you booked with your tour for your convenience. Although not all agencies are trustworthy, Cebu Tours is something you could totally trust. They are a DOT accredited travel agency and they are operating legally unlike other tour agencies or operators.
However, you could also take part of this amazing adventure that awaits you in the South by doing it yourself. Just follow the guide below for those who wants to DIY this adventure.
Getting to Oslob from Cebu
If you are within Cebu City, just head to South Bus Terminal which is beside the Elizabeth Mall (E-Mall).
Look for the bus that is bound to Bato via Liloan and tell the driver or the conductor to drop you off at the Barangay Tan-awan in Oslob.
From there, you have to register and attend an orientation that won’t took long for you to know what are the guidelines and other stuffs that you must remember for whale shark watching.
TIP: Travel early to avoid the traffic within the City and the crowd in the whale shark watching site since it’s a very popular tourist attraction so expect lots of people will be present.
Getting to Tumalog Falls from Whale Shark Watching
Ride a motorcycle or habal-habal, as what the locals calls it, to take you to Tumalog Falls.
The ride won’t take hours so it won’t take you long and the driver will surely drop you off at the Tumalog Falls and have fun bathing and taking awesome pics from the area.
Getting to Sumilon Sandbar from Tumalog Falls
Have a habal-habal to take you to Sumilon Island port at Bancogon Oslob.
Take the ferry that goes to Sumilon Island from there. The ferry to Sumilon Island runs every hour and a half starting at 8:00 a.m. and the last one to the island is at 4:30 p.m. The ferry ride is about 10 minutes.
NOTE: If you’re not staying overnight on the island, be sure take a ferry returning to the mainland by 5:00 p.m., which is when the last ferry back to Oslob leaves.
Getting to Kawasan Falls in Badian from Sumilon Island in Oslob
Be sure to leave Sumilon Island early so you still have time for the Kawasan Falls adventure, I suggest you leave the island before 1pm so you will still have time for the last stop which is Kawasan Falls and for you to get on the last bus trip going back to the City from Badian.
Take the boat that goes back to Bancogon Oslob from Sumilon Island.
Ride the bus that goes to Bato first, when you arrived at Bato, take the bus that goes to Badian or Cebu City (via Barili).
Tell the conductor or the driver to drop you off at the Kawasan Falls.
Getting Back to the City from Kawasan Falls
Once you are doing enjoying your time in the South of Cebu and it's time for you to get back to the City, you just have to be on the opposite side of the road from Kawasan Falls’ entrance and wait for a bus that is bound to Cebu City to pass by.
