The Boho River in Aloguinsan is a tour activity that is for now understated. The Boho River has yet to gain popularity and traction compared to other southern Cebu towns like Oslob (where you can swim with the whalesharks), Badian (where you can enjoy Kawasan Falls or do Canyoneering) and Moalboal (where you can snorkel or dive and witness the magnificent sardine run after taking in the beauty of Pescador Island).
Green Earth Tours and Travel, as a Cebu-based travel agency and Cebu tour operator committed to supporting ecotourism efforts of the government, is proud to introduce and promote the Boho River Cruise.
A 1-hour tour along the Aloguinsan river gives you an intimate experience as you learn about mangroves, their ecosystem, and the locals looking after them. You will be impressed with how the townsfolk who used to undertake kaingin for a living, now ardently protect the environment that gives them sustenance and allows then a decent living.
At the end of the Boho Cruise, you will experience being in the mouth of the river, where the water empties into the sea. If the tides are friendly, you can venture out into the sea, and explore the corals and marine life there. That said, even without venturing out of the mouth of the river, you can already swim in the brackish,emerald Boho River.
The Boho River Cruise is a full-day tour, which includes your travel time from and back to Cebu City. It takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours per way to get to Aloguinsan. The Boho River in Aloguinsan is not the only tour attraction one can expect to enjoy, as the tour also includes a briefing about the project as well as handicraft demo. Native lunch will also be served during the tour. If there is time, you can swing by Hermit’s Cove for more beach time. That said, there are a lot of steps to get down to the beach from the entry point, so it may not be advisable for those with weak knees.
Going back from Aloguinsan, you can pass by the quaint city of Carcar, to appreciate its old houses and the imposing St. Catherine of Alexandria Church. Also, you can drop by the Carcar Rotunda area to shop for souvenirs and native delicacies like chicharron, bocarillo and ampao.
The Boho river cruise is ideal for tourists who want a relaxed activity in the countryside. It’s a tour in Cebu where one can enjoy and at the same time give back to the society because the locals earn from your spending. Students on educational tour in Cebu or perhaps local government units which want to see how sustainable ecotourism projects are executed may want to consider Boho River in Aloguinsan as a must-see destination. Cebuanos, Filipinos and foreigners will love the Boho Tour.
