Enjoy an enchanting evening surrounded by the warm glow of fireflies in Coron with this private firefly watching Palawan tour. This activity is perfect for travelers looking for a less crowded attraction in Coron since only a few people are allowed at a time to avoid scaring the fireflies. In addition to the Coron firefly watching tour, this package also covers the entrance fees, a set dinner, hotel pick-up and drop-off for accommodations within Coron, land transfers, and service of a guide. 

On the day of your firefly watching in Coron, your designated guide will pick you up from your Coron hotel around dusk. From there, the guide will drive you to the local mangrove forest, which is home to swarms of fireflies. After your guide settles the registration and entrance fees, you will board a small boat at a nearby port. 

When you've settled into the boat, the guide will begin steering the boat across the river that cuts through the mangrove trees. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled so you can spot the fireflies dancing around you and the trees. Your guide will also share tidbits about the area and the insects, such as how the forest is a perfect habitat for them due to the tropical climate. 

Feel free to take photos of this beautiful encounter but make sure to turn your flash off so you won't end up scaring off these gentle creatures. While the fireflies light up the air around you, you can also witness another elegant natural phenomenon that takes place just along the water's surface: the bioluminescent plankton. 

These microscopic animals tend to emit light when they move across the surface. To get a better look at how they glow a soft blue light, dip your hand in the water and make gentle movements to see the edges of the small ripples you create glow a shade of blue. Soon you will find yourself in the middle of a light show thrown by mother nature herself as the fireflies, and the planktons light up the water and the air around you. 

After marveling at these shimmering creatures, you will head back to the port and enjoy your complimentary set dinner. When you've finished your delicious meal, your guide will escort you back to your hotel within Coron. 

Experience a magical encounter with Coron's fireflies through this leisurely tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Good to know

This is a seasonal tour which means our tour operator will have to check whether the date of the tour is fit for firefly watching as this is also a weather-dependent tour.

The recommended pick-up time is 6:00 PM but since this is a private tour guest may recommend their preferred time and our operator will advise whether the schedule would fit the itinerary. Set dinner will be served after the activity

If the guest is within Coron already after their day tour, they can be picked up by the partner operator. So that there will be no delays in picking up a guest far from Coron.

The operator may cancel the tour in case of force majeure or unforseen circumstances like weather conditions. In this case, you will be given the option to reschedule or request a full refund. Note that being late by 15-30 minutes without any advice is considered a no-show. Tour cancellation requests must be made 48 hours before your scheduled tour subject for approval.

See you soon!
