Moving Around

 

Take a boat trip down the Cambuhat River and experience a taste of local life when you visit an oyster farm. Wind through verdant mangroves and nipa palms, learn about the culture of the region, and stop for a demonstration of oyster farming and a delicious seafood lunch in a local village.

Get picked up from your hotel and travel to the Daet Bridge, located in the town of Buenavista. Upon arrival, transfer to a boat on the Cambuhat River that the bridge overlooks and set off into the gentle current with an experience boatman at the helm. Your guide points out endemic flora and birdlife as you weave through lush mangroves and the waving leaves of nipa palms.

Disembark the boat at a local village and visit its oyster farm, where residents prepare a delicious lunch of fresh seafood and oysters. During your meal, watch a performance of Buri dancing, a traditional Filipino art. Later, experts at the farm teach you about the culture of their industry and how oysters are cultivated in the river. Take some time to explore the village and watch demonstrations of nipa palm weaving before you head back to Tagbilaran.
