Enjoy an incredible light show courtesy of Mother Nature as you witness the thousands of fireflies that illuminate the night sky of the Abatan River, during this private cruise and dinner. It’s your chance to witness one of nature’s most beautiful, idyllic spectacles aboard your own private boat.
Start your evening with a 5:30pm pickup from your Bohol hotel, driving for about an hour to the Bee Farm Restaurant situated on Panglao Island. Once you arrive at the restaurant, sit down for a delicious gourmet organic dinner, complemented by fantastic ocean views and a friendly, accommodating staff.
After your meal, your private boat cruise begins. Climb aboard your pump boat with your guide, after which you’ll head downriver at a leisurely pace. Before you know it, you’ll begin to notice intermittent, flickering glows coming from the trees along the riverbank. The size and speed of light show soon picks up in intensity, with the tiny insects at times covering nearly every inch of the trees and foliage. It’s an incredible natural phenomenon only Mother Nature could create.
While this wondrous spectacle has long been known to locals, it’s only in recent years that tourists and city-dwellers have come to see it too. During the migration season you may even see a few birds catching some shut eye among the branches of the mangroves lining the river.
Finish your boat trip after about an hour, after which you’ll receive a drop-off back at your hotel, the memories of this one-of-a-kind glowing performance still lingering in your head.
