WHALE SHARKS & WATERFALLS

CEBU SHORT BREAK 2019

DATE: 9-13 December 2019
DURATION: 5 days / 4 nights

This short break adventure in Cebu offers 5 action-packed days of adventure where you’ll swim with whale sharks, turtles and inside of giant bait balls. You’ll be cliff jumping, leaping off waterfalls, floating down rivers and clambering over boulders in a canyon. You’ll island-hop, beach comb and soak in thermal hot springs, and - if you’re certified - you’ll even have tie for some scuba diving on amazing coral reefs.

LOCATION

Cebu is a long and narrow island that stretches 196 km from north to south, and 32 km from east to west. It is the largest island in the Visayas region and is particularly rich in historical significance, thanks to its early colonisation by the Spanish.

Cebu City is the second largest city in the Philippines and is where the airport and main shipping port are located.

Cebu’s prime attractions are its white-sand beaches, spectacular waterfalls, and snorkelling opportunities with marine life.

We’ll be basing ourselves in the lively coastal town of Moalboal; some 90km southwest of Cebu City. On our drive there from the airport, we’ll pass by rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges.

The coastal road affords a great view of the island’s many beaches, fishing villages, mangrove forests and rich fishing grounds. There are a huge variety of manmade and natural attractions that draw adventure-seekers, but we’ll be focussing our time on a select few.

Canyoneering is an exhilarating activity that has become very popular in Cebu, thanks to Kawasan Falls. It can be rather demanding as it blends climbing, walking, leaping, swimming and scrambling all into one spectacular day of fun.

Snorkelling is another popular activity and as its possible to snorkel with harmless whale sharks, turtles, sardine bait balls and even thresher sharks. We’ll take a boat out for the day and island-hop our way from Pescador Island to the many other west-coast sites, and will also spend a morning on the east coast, swimming with the harmless yet massive whale sharks.

Waterfalls abound and we’ll take in our fair share (about 13); leaping from the top of many and bathing under a few. We’ll also head to the thermal springs for an evening soak, and check out the fireflies that light up the trees like it’s Christmas every day of the year.
