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.

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

WOW. Just 10 km north of Tagbilaran center you can find Kayaksia. Their approach to firefly watching and preservation is very eco friendly and considerate. Other companies use motor boats which ruin the silence and the mood a little (and also pollute the water which...More

It was great, the staff is cool, the Kayaks are new, and food was great. The Glow worms trip was incredible, it's a 2 hours tour, and it is really interesting to have a guide who shared his knowledge about the region.
