Have a magical experience with this private firefly-watching tour at Abatan River in Bohol. This night tour usually takes around 2 to 3 hours and already comes with the entrance fee, the assistance of a tour guide, and air-conditioned van transfers. 

If you are staying in Panglao Island or Tagbilaran, your guide will pick you up at your hotel or resort at 5 PM. Otherwise, you will be picked up at a designated meet-up spot. Once you are with your guide, you will head to Abatan River via van. Upon reaching Abatan River, you will board a small boat. The boat will take you on a slow cruise down the Abatan River. Mangroves and other trees line the edges of the river, and these trees are home to fireflies that light them up like Christmas trees. 

Listen to your guide and pay attention to their instructions, as they will point out the trees that are full of fireflies. Your boatman will get the boat near these trees so you have the chance to get close to the fireflies and watch them fly and twinkle in the natural habitat. You can try to take photos of the fireflies, but bring a powerful camera with night mode to better capture the beauty of the scene. 

In between stopping at trees with fireflies, don’t forget to look up. There are fewer city lights in this area of Bohol, which will allow you to have a great view of the night sky while cruising. 

After the cruise, your boat will return to the docks, and your driver will bring you back to your hotel or resort in Panglao Island or Tagbilaran or at an agreed-upon location so you can rest for the night.

Enjoy a night of firefly-watching with this tour in Abatan, Bohol. Check the availability by choosing a date.
