There were 3 boats during our cruise. One group with about 20pax.
Trip was about 1.5hour. We booked our cruise earlier at noon. There are 2 cruises daily, 9am and 4pm. There are boats for 6 to 18pax.
Can buy tickets at the counter. After registering our names, we were allocated our seats according to our names in the register. We were given life jackets to be worn all the time during the cruise. Even smalls kids are not exempted, as safety is of utmost importance.
It was a different cruise compared to cruises at Taman Negara Pahang. We were fortunate to see monkeys, monitor lizards, snakes, birds and crabs on trees. Our guides were important to share with us where to see the animals. Great experience to show the importance of mangrove trees. Thank you Hafiz and team.

There is already a lot of coverage on Hafiz River Activities. Simply put the Cherating River is beautiful and there is still a lot of mangrove forest up river. You can choose the easy way, that is, the river cruise. But if you are looking for time by yourself and a friend, kayaking is the way to go and it is much cheaper at RM40 for two persons for three hours.

Awesome place to see the fireflies. Managed to catch few and release them back.
What a ride in the dark and all you could see are the fireflies. Simply beautiful

We actually planned to go to Limbong Art to do batik painting for the kids but it was still closed at 10.30am, without alternate plan we just wondered around and found this nice and newly built building called Hafiz's River Activities and boy it was a lucky find.
I went inside to check out the activities and there is river cruise, firefly watch etc. as my daughter is still young (2y/o) and we been to firefly watch before at Kuala Selangor and she had been crying all the way.. so I'm thinking no more firefly.. so we decided for the river cruise. The schedule showing river cruise start at 9.00am but I was told that we can do it now as long as there is min 2 persons. The tickets cost RM35 adults and RM25 for children ( if I remember correctly Opss).
The jetty is just located behind the building and after wearing the life jacket off we go. The guide/boatman is very experience and with a pair of very sharp eye! The whole journey he had stop multiple time to point to us the wild animal that we missed. We went from the main river to the smaller and deeper into the forest. We saw lizard, snakes, squirrel, beehive as big as a bus windscreen, owl, eagle, otters and wild duck.
The journey supposedly lasted around 1 1/2hrs ended up around 2 hrs as the guide was so excited to look for wildlife for my kids to see.
Overall it is a must do when u are in Cherating.. friendly and professional staff.

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).

Thank Youfor T
