Overview

The Original FIREFLY KAYAKING Tour in Bohol : Be awed by hundreds - sometimes thousands of fireflies in a scene that could have come out of a fantasy movie. Under the ambient moonlight, we will paddle into one of the last pristine mangrove rivers of Bohol, where you will witness one of nature’s most amazing sights. Your guides will be paddlers from the river community who once were mangrove harvesters. Now as kayak guides, they protect the mangrove ecosystem that is key to life in the river. The whole experience is capped with a home cooked Filipino dinner - organic ingredients and locally sourced, prepared by the same community. This Firefly Kayaking trip is our company’s pride in promoting a truly environmentally sustainable and socially responsible ecotourism enterprise. Kayakasia Philippines is an eco-adventure travel company managed by professional kayak guides who explore, design, and then guide their own trips while working directly with the local communities.

A wonderful tour. Well organized (tour guide Ulo was amazing). The fireflies are so beautiful. It was a far better experience to kayak along a peaceful river under the starry sky than on a noisy motor boat tour touted by some on Alona beach. Would...More

Kayaking and firefly watching for a good cause. It helps pay for the tuition fees of college students who also work for them. Book them instead of using the motor boats, which stresses the fireflies and ruins the mangroves. The government of Bohol should support...More

We had a great firefly kayaking tour with Kayakasia! It was the highlight of all our travels in the Philippines, highly recommended! Also, your money goes to a very good cause helping the local youth to get education.

Could not recommend this trip highly enough, a definite must if you visit Bohol. Not much compares to slowly kayaking up a river at sunset with flocks of egrets and enormous fruit bats flying overhead. Having never seen a firefly before, it was incredible to...More
