Admission and Entrance Fees
This full day tour from Tagbilaran City takes you on a drive along the well-paved northern coastal roads of Bohol to Daet Bridge in the town of Buenavista. You will be welcomed by women who will usher you to your individual paddleboat or canoe, with their husbands as your boatmen. While canoeing along the nipa-lined river, your boatman will give you insights on the activities in the community, one of which is oyster farming.
After about 40 minutes of paddleboat riding, disembark to the community center where a lunch of seafood (such as oysters, fish, crab, and more) awaits you. This lunch is prepared by the villagers and served “al fresco” style in a native kiosk. During lunch, enjoy local entertainment of native songs and poetry.
Other activities includes a walking tour into the village where you can observe the local´s skill in rafia cloth loom-weaving, broom-making (using “buri”, a locally abundant palm), and coconut-shell handicrafts.
Don´t forget to bring a wide-brimmed hat to shield you from the morning sun!
