What To Expect

Cherating River
Before embarking on the boat, you will have a briefing about fireflies and our safety measures. You will then take the river cruise at about 8pm, when it's pretty dark. You will travel down the river and the leader will shine his torch towards the trees and with that 100's of fireflies will slowly fly towards the boat.

The leader will also share with you all about the behavior of fireflies, watching the little lights glide across the water to the boat is almost mystical.

Join this tour and have a wonderful night with your family and kids!

Magical experience with fireflies in the mangrove

We did the first tour with Hafiz in 2012, and we found it a fantastic experience for everyone visiting Cherating. Watching the behavior of the fireflies and learning about their uniqueness in the hundreds / thousands of species is really great.

Hafiz has come a very long way but his passion and involvement continues to be the same. Really committed to preserve the environment and ecology of the mangrove while providing an educational point to the visitors.

Don’t miss it!
great :)

An amazing and magical experience! Hafiz really knows his stuff when it comes to fireflies, and somehow manages to lure the fireflies from their trees towards you with a flashlight. They will land on your hand or perhaps on your head sometimes, it truly is a fantastic experience and there's nothing quite like it! Though if you bring kids, be sure to tell them to be nice to the fireflies. Was on a boat with children and they kept trying to roughly catch the fireflies, which is rather cruel! Otherwise a beautiful experience and absolutely magical.
