Whalesharks in Oslob, Cebu

Whalesharks in Oslob

While we were staying in Dumaguete, my friends and I decided to spend a day tour in Oslob, Cebu. We went whaleshark watching and also visit two nearby waterfalls! Click the link below to read more about my adventure in Oslob. 🙂

How to get to Oslob from Dumaguete City?

From Sibulan Port in Dumaguete take a Fastcraft (Php 62) or Pumpboat (Php 45) to Liloan Port. They run every 30 minutes from 5am to 7pm. Once we arrived in Liloan, we found a tricycle driver who could take us around the whole day – if I remember corrected we paid P1,500 (we were a group of 5 so, 300 each), excluding tip.

Contact for Tricycle Driver: Jomi +63965-269-6258


Once we arrived we had our breakfast at one of the nearby restaurants. I got Daing with egg. Yum!
