What people are saying about Cebu City

A great experience and professional tour. Everything went great. We were picked up from the hotel on time at 3am. Our driver Joseph was just great! He was friendly, fun, provided us with a lot of information about Cebu and the tour and just took care of everything throughout the tour. I would recommend everyone to rent an underwater camera on site. The boatswain will then take beautiful photos of you while you are in the water. With us there were 200 photos. You only have to borrow the camera for € 9, then the photos will be transferred to your cell phone. Otherwise you can also borrow everything very cheaply on site. Life jacket and diving goggles are included. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the tour. It was a very nice and special experience.

Take sneakers to the island. Travel well. Seems that you should get a given time for the homecoming m the boat from the island

The whale sharks were very crowded, there was no agreed massage
