Iwahig Firefly Watching Area

Firefly at Iwahig Firefly Watching Area in Puerto Princesa

The Iwahig Firefly Watching Area is located in Puerto Princesa in Palawan. As its name suggests, it is the perfect spot to see fireflies at night. Tours here are managed by the Iwahig community.

Since the fireflies can usually be found in mangrove trees along the Iwahig River, the best way to see them is through an Iwatig firefly watching cruise. The cruise will take around 30 to 45 minutes, depending on how long you want to stop at the trees to admire the fireflies.

Apart from the fireflies, you can also admire the views of the night sky during your visit. Because there is less pollution and fewer lights here, you will be able to get a better view. You might even see bioluminescent plankton light up the river water if you're lucky.

Tickets and entry

Tour and ticket prices vary on the type of tour and its inclusions. Tours can be shared or private, and some even include dinner.

Best time to visit

Since fireflies are best viewed at night, cruise tours usually run from 6 PM to 10 PM. This activity is outdoors, so it's best that you schedule it during the dry months of November to May, as rains can cause your tour to be canceled.
