Cebu: Private Sumilon Island & Optional Whale Shark Swim

1. Cebu: Private Sumilon Island & Optional Whale Shark Swim

Discover the pristine beaches and crystal clear blue water of Sumilon Island on this private full-day tour from Cebu. Rise early, meet your driver at your hotel lobby in Cebu City, Mactan, or Lapu-Lapu City, and then head to Oslob city. From there, take a boat from a small port to arrive near Sumilon Island, then enjoy the island and its surroundings for approximately 4-5 hours. Explore the island's natural lagoon protected by mangroves and watch for local wildlife. Sunbathe on clean beaches and swim in the clear blue water. If you're lucky, you might spot a turtle or wild whale shark. Once your time around the island is up, head back to your accommodation in Cebu City, Mactan, or Lapu-Lapu City. If you're seeking an adventure, extend your trip by swimming with whale sharks before the trip to Sumilon Island. After a briefing about what to look for and basic safety rules, embark on a once-in-a-lifetime swimming experience with amazing whale sharks. Snorkel and swim alongside these gentle giants in their beautiful natural habitat. For a relaxing day trip, select the option with whale shark swimming and Sumilon Island beach resort access. After swimming with the whale sharks, enter the one and only resort on Sumilon Island where you can enjoy a lunch buffet, water activity gear rental, and the facilities within the resort. Freely use the lagoon swimming pool, the beach, the kiddie park, and sunbeds.

Cebu Island Hopping with Lunch

2. Cebu Island Hopping with Lunch

Experience the fun of island hopping in the province of Cebu, one of the most beautiful regions in the Philippines. Start your tour by riding in a banca, or a motorized canoe. Feel the breeze and fresh air as we travel to the Gilutungan Marine Sanctuary, enjoying snacks and drinks on the way. When we arrive at the shore, hop off the boat to see the abundant marine life, and the variety of corals and reef dwellers. Feel free to feed the fish with your hands for a close encounter with the local wildlife. As we leave Gilutanga, enjoy a delicious meal of local specialties as we move along to our next destination, the Caohagan Island. Take your pick of diving or dining (or both!) enjoying the clear waters and the delicious food on offer at the buffet. From here we will carry on to the next island, Sulpa, with more chances for both diving and dining. As the waters around Sulpa are deeper with more lively marine life, take the chance to use one of our snorkels and goggles free of charge, and explore the clear and beautiful waters. We will then return to Cebu City, giving you a chance to relax and take in your surroundings after this unique island-hopping experience.

What people are saying about Lapu-Lapu City

Awesome day

We lucked out and had a huge boat for just the two of us. The guide and boatman were super friendly and humble and we're the reason the trip was extra special as helped us with dish identification and spotting. We snorkels with an amazing array of fish saw several islands while cruising to the beach. The bbq lunch was fantastic and then after asking they obliged to take us back to snorkel more andwas able to see different fish as was different time of day.

With this Mactan Island Hopping tour package you will experience the beauty of three islands surrounding Mactan Cebu (Hilutungan, Pandanon and Nalusuan). Crew was very nice, friendly and the sights were amazing. Would recommend.

We enjoyed seeing nearby islands in cebu. Although some are still recovering from last years devastating typhoon.

Awesome time island hopping, our guide Aying Belle was so knowledgeable about the islands and the city of Cebu.

great for couples and big groups with private boat
