#1 OSLOB WHALE WATCHING
Although I am not a fan of any forms of unnatural fish feeding, I guess a visit to Oslob will not be complete without seeing the butanding. The trick is to lure the whales near the shore by giving them food every morning so the tourists are able to swim closely with them and this seem to have become a regular activity for the whales. There are rules and regulations set by the Tan-awan Oslob Sea Warden Fisherman's Association (TOSWFA) for the protection of the whales and the tourists (such as attending a briefing before the activity and to not touch the whales to avoid them being distressed) so make sure you follow all these. There are several ways for travelers to book this activity:
#2. Watch the sunrise along the beach
Before the whale watching starts, you can spend time at the beach early in the morning to watch the sunrise. This is the same area where whale watching happens. Once the restaurants open, you can have your sumptuous -silog meals and fresh fruit shakes for breakfast. The photo below was taken in front of BCD's Place where we stayed for the night.
#3. walk up the 5-tier aguinid falls
Aguinid Falls is located in Samboan, one of the southern municipalities of Cebu. The entry to the falls will only take you about 5 minutes walk from the highway so it is very convenient for tourists to visit this spectacle. Its one of the many falls in Samboan (and nearby towns) which you shouldn't miss. I would definitely recommend to include this in your side trips if you are visiting Moalboal, Oslob or any part of southern Cebu.
Climbing the 5-tier waterfalls of Aguinid was the most exciting sort of mini-canyoneering experience I've had. Probably not as challenging as the one in Badian and Alegria but fun nonetheless. Swimming in the cold spring water is also refreshing.

#4. swim in the cold tumalog falls
If you are planning to chase waterfalls, then this is definitely a waterfalls worth the chase. Located in Oslob, Cebu, this waterfalls is a few minutes by habal-habal or motorcycle from the whale watching area or from Oslob town proper. This is a recommended stop-over when you are in Oslob.
Going back up to the main road was the most challenging part of the trip. Habal-habal drivers are stationed at the foot of the road just in case guests decide to charter them back to the main road.

#5. beach bum at sumilon island
Beyond Oslob is an island called Sumilon. It is a tiny island about 20 minutes by boat from Tan-awan, Oslob. The island is part of Bancogon, Oslob and hosts the Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort. It's only about 24 hectares so tourists can roam around the island by foot in a couple of hours. Several activities are available in the island, especially if you are checked-in in Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort. Otherwise, you could just enjoy the sandbar.

#6. visit the oslob church and town plaza
The church and the plaza are located in the town proper of Oslob. The church is very picturesque against the bright blue noontime sky. In the afternoon, the plaza near the baywalk is filled with children's laughters, sellers' hawks and women's chitchats, bringing you back to the laid-back and relaxing provincial life.
