What To Expect

The fireflies of Puerto Princesa are famous for being a breathtaking spectacle. This tour will get you right up close to this amazing natural wonder. You'll be able to enjoy a delicious buffet dinner before you climb aboard a boat and set off on the Iwahig River. As dusk falls and darkness settles, the light show of the fireflies begin. It is only in Southeast Asia where fireflies glow in unison; they are a repeating, glowing beat, as seen through the mangrove trees. The whole line of mangroves and trees will be lit with flashing fireflies, glowing together, and so distinct that it is said that in these parts of the world, fishermen use them as a form of guiding system to find their way in the darkness of the night. Don't miss the chance to see these breathtaking wonders when you head to Puerto Princesa!

    The firefly watching was OK, did not see much fireflies, the tour guide and staffs are friendly, and the buffet dinner was quite decent. Important note: you can see more fireflies when there is no moon at all (first day of lunar month)

    Only book if you have extra free time to spend....

    If I could rate this 0 stars, I would, we expected to be taken on the Iwahig river tour with paddle boats and all - except we found ourselves on a motorboat crossing the bay into some random area. We couldn’t hear the tour guide over the sound of the boat. As such, I don’t know where we went and learnt nothing about the fireflies. All we got was the guide telling us to look left or right for fireflies. I later found out there were two possible firefly cruises, and although I clearly booked this tour, we were put on something we didn’t book. It was an awful waste of money and time, I’ve been trying to contact Klook and the agency they booked for us with no response. Be aware of the possible deceit if you decide to book this.

    It was a great experience. The buffet was nice... there's mussels(a big one), shrimps and a lot more. The banana taste good. The firefly tour is nice... also the plankton... it was pretty amazing...

    Expectations were relatively low but this proved to be totally worth it. This is not only a firefly watching activity, the guides were super competent in pointing out super interesting information about the island, fauna and flora as well as stargazing. Pick up and drop off was on time and organised. Recommended. Only negative was the food - definitely a let down in terms of quality.

    It was an overwhelming and relaxing night for all tourists who are happily watching the amazing fireflies flying freely in the night through the trees and mangroves in the riverside. Free dinner is okay. Overall, it was indeed a beautiful and memorable experience though, it was not a starry night that time. Our local tour guide, Lawrence, provided us with initial introduction regarding the place and he was very cool and funny :)
