Such a magical and unforgettable experience! The place was so spectacular filled with twinkling fireflies on a full moon night. Furthermore, our boatman was pretty knowledgeable and entertaining, making the whole experience even more awesome. We also love the buffet style food that comes with the tour.

Remember to bring/buy insect repellant as there are many mosquitoes out and about at night! The tour was very educational and the fireflies were pretty! :)

An evening adventure awaits as you take a night boat ride along the Iwahig River to watch the fireflies glow. It's a small boat that seats about 4 people, and the boatman paddles you out and talks about the history and nature of the river. He flashes a red light against the dark trees and you see the fireflies light up at the spots. The river water also lights up as the paddle hits the Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates, or planktons. It's really cool to see such beautiful things light up on its own.
