Go on a nighttime cruise and see majestic fireflies light up some trees when you book this Bohol firefly watching private tour. This tour is perfect for those who want to see the beauty of Bohol at night hassle-free, as it already comes with hotel pick-up and drop-off, a packed dinner, and the assistance of a tour guide.

You will be picked up from your hotel or resort in Tagbilaran City at 6 PM. Should you want a different pick-up time, you may request a schedule change, but note that this will be subject to availability. After you are picked up, you will head to either Loboc River in Loay or Abatan River in Cortes. The trees along the riverbanks of these rivers are home to thousands of fireflies. These rivers are far away enough from the pollution of the city, which allows fireflies to thrive. You can choose to eat your packed dinner along the way.

Once you arrive at the river, you will board a boat. This boat will take you on a slow cruise down the river. As you enjoy the Abatan or Loay firefly watching tour, your guide will tell you more about the fireflies that you will see. They will also point out the firefly-lit trees, so pay attention to their instructions. You’ll get a closer look at these wonderful creatures when your boat goes nearer to the bank. If your trip falls during the migration season, you might also see birds sleeping on the branches of the trees. After marveling at this sight, you’ll continue your cruise and look for more trees with fireflies.

You’ll stop at several other trees before heading back to the docks. After alighting from the boat, your transfer will accompany you back to your hotel or resort in Tagbilaran City.

Book this firefly river cruise and be enchanted by the view of shimmering trees at night. Check the availability by choosing a date.
