It's great to experience our mother nature through this mangrove river from Hafiz. It's not just only gain the extra knowledge from him, he will bring you involve together to see how amazing in our mother nature. Have a very amazing night through the fireflies boat tour, it's absolutely amazing when the fireflies fly towards us. It's just like the romantic screen in the movie or drama(laugh).

We booked our firefly cruise with Hafiz and it was simply amazing! The cruise was approximately an hour and it was priced reasonably. Our guide Hafiz is very knowledgeable and have spent years studying them. Cruising Cherating River at night and being surrounded by these tiny beaming fireflies was absolutely unforgettable. Note to those who are keen to join the cruise - no photos please during the cruise. Do respect the rules set forth.

The river cruise was 1.5hrs. We were made to sit in a small boat with life jackets. The water was very murky but could really feel and see the mangroves up and close. The guide showed us the black mangrove snake and the monitor lizard very closely. It was good to see their animals in their natural habitat. I was really scared and thought what if they jump in our boat. But fortunately that never happened. We booked the tour through Hafiz activities something like that which costed us RM 35pp. Overall nice to experience nature at its best

This tour is the absolutely best place to take the firefly cruise. Hafiz spent years learning about the local fireflies and even developed his own method of talking to them and calling them over to the boat so they encircle you in their magical beams of light. This cruise is worth both the time and money and very educational.

Good for guests thatoves outdoor. A river trip up along Cherating river. Animal life is still present in this area, monkeys, snakes and otters. Quite relaxing trip in the mangroves
