Hop on a boat to watch fireflies slowly fill the night sky with their iridescent glow in the Abatan River in Bohol. If you’re looking for a relaxing activity to cap off your day in the province, then this late afternoon escapade is definitely worth booking.
Your assigned driver will pick you up at your resort or hotel in Panglao or Tagbilaran city proper. Once everyone is all set, you will proceed to the boat dock, where your Bandong, a traditional boat, is waiting for you. You can also opt to take the kayak for an additional fee if you prefer a one-on-one experience with only you and the guide on board. Life jackets will be provided to keep the activity safe.
After donning your life vests, get ready to settle in on the boat. You will then begin your cruise shortly after. Marvel at the early evening glow while the boat lazily passes by the countryside. Wait until the entire area is covered in darkness and before you know it, a handful of twinkling lights will begin showing up by the side of the river.
They will slowly fill the river with their glow until almost everything is lighted by the fascinating fireflies. Watch them dance before your eyes with their magical faint glow. Feel free to capture the moment on camera, but make sure to set your device in the right mode and not to use flash photography so you won’t scare them away. After a good few minutes of cruising the river, you will be brought back to the dock. You can choose to take the dinner option for an extra charge before heading back to your hotel.
