Watch fireflies light up the trees around you while sailing down an idyllic river in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, through this day tour. This firefly tour in Puerto Princesa is a perfect experience for travelers craving a slow and relaxing activity in nature. This firefly watching Palawan activity is inclusive of roundtrip transfers from Puerto Princesa's city proper to the river, a shared paddle boat, life vests, a complimentary dinner, and the service of a guide. 

At 5 PM, you will travel in an air-conditioned van from your hotel in Puerto Princesa City to a local restaurant where you will first be served a sumptuous dinner. After the meal, the tour van will take you to the drop-off point near the Iwahig River or Kito-Kito River. Upon reaching the site, you will proceed to the waiting area and wait for your group’s turn to get on a boat for either the Iwahig firefly watching activity or Kito-kito firefly watching activity. Life vests will also be provided at the site for your safety.  

Both rivers for the firefly watching Puerto Princesa activity are lined with mangrove trees where fireflies are abundant. Once the darkness settles in, the main event then starts. The fireflies will glow one by one in the dark, illuminating the trees and looking a lot like Christmas lights. Ready your camera so you can capture how these little dazzling insects create such surreal beauty. Please keep in mind that during the tour, flash photography is not allowed as it might scare off the fireflies.

As you sail through the river, your seasoned boatman and guide will inform you about everything you need to know about the river and the fireflies. He will also show you bioluminescent phytoplankton. You will be asked to paddle through the waters and wait as the planktons glow underwater.

Hop aboard this one-night boat trip and see for yourself the breathtaking sight of fireflies lighting up the evening sky. Check the availability by choosing a date.
