Description

Learn how to stand up paddle board (SUP) and go firefly watching in Bohol with this tour in Loboc River. This activity in Loboc River, Bohol is perfect for beginners, as the river is one of the best places in the Philippines to learn stand up paddle boarding. This experience comes with a basic stand up paddle board lesson, the use of a board and a paddle, and the assistance of a guide.

This activity starts at 6 PM and will last around two hours. Meet up with your guide and instructor at the Fox & The Firefly Cottages, which is located along the Loboc River. Make sure to be there by 5:30 PM to avoid any delays. 

After a brief introduction, your instructor will hand you your board and paddle so you can proceed with your basic ASI (Academy of Surfing) flat water and open water stand up paddleboard lesson. During this lesson, you will familiarize yourself with the stand up paddle board equipment and then learn about the basics of the activity. This includes boarding and getting off the paddle board, as well as the best way to maneuver the board in the water.

Once you are ready, you will set out to explore the Loboc River. Your instructor and guide will always be nearby should you need assistance. During this night tour of Loboc River, you will stop near mangrove trees on the river banks to get a closer look at the fireflies that light their branches up. If you have a camera with you, make sure not to use flash to avoid disturbing the fireflies. Observe the fireflies from afar and avoid getting too close to the trees.

Apart from the fireflies, you will also be treated to a gorgeous view of the night sky. Since there is less light pollution in this area, you will be able to see more stars here, so don’t forget to look up! 

When your two hours are over, you will head back to the Fox & Firefly Cottages and return your board and paddle so you can then explore the rest of Bohol on your own.

Enjoy firefly watching in Bohol when you book this Loboc River stand up paddleboard tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
