Experience the magic of nature with the Puerto Princesa Firefly Watching Tour, a unique adventure that takes you deep into the heart of the mangrove forest. As the sun sets, watch in awe as hundreds of fireflies light up the trees, creating a mesmerizing natural spectacle that will leave you spellbound.

The mangrove forest, with its high humidity and proximity to water, provides the perfect environment for fireflies to thrive. After a day of diving and other water activities in Puerto Princesa, firefly watching is the perfect way to unwind and connect with nature.


Late afternoon, meet at the hotel and transfer to the Baywalk of Puerto Princesa. Board the boat and head to the nearby mangrove coastal forest to witness the sight of thousands of glittering fireflies at sunset – like Christmas lights illuminating the darkness of the night. After the 30- to 40-minute river cruise continue to a floating restaurant for dinner. After dinner, transfer back to your hotel.

From a minimum of 8 up to 20 people per boat.
