Why Tagum City River Cruise is special ?

The River Cruise is an enticing 8.8 km boat ride along Tancu-an up to the Davao Gulf and back. It's a perfect eco-tourism destination in the Region with value added premiums that breaks the monotony of established river cruise in the country. Aside from the more than 2-hour long stretch river ride and commune with nature, local community integration to its rich culture and heritage as well as mangrove forest walk experience and a lot of others are intertwined for complete satisfying aqua adventure in the River Cruise.

What to explore at Tagum City River Cruise?

Tagum City the start of the project of Tagum City River Cruise , where 15 motor-powered leisure boats took visitors to experience the beauty of nature and the richness of the city’s Muslim culture along the banks of the seven-kilometer Tancu-an River.

The riverbanks were planted with mangroves to serve as fish breeding ground and cleared of illegal fishing structures so as not to impede the river flow.

Among the highlights of the two-hour tour are the stopovers, where tourists could buy wares and delicacies sold at a floating market, visit a park inside the mangrove forest and drop by the community Kalagan tribes in Liboganon village where they could experience the community’s rich culture.

The project is the city’s answer to the clamor for locals and visitors of an eco-tourism destination in the province, and it is the city’s attempt at rivaling Bohol’s well-known Loboc River cruise and floating restaurant

A boat trip for almost two hours was another exciting experience for me this day. Friends agreed to go on a boat trip to see how it is in this newly opened attraction in the City of Tagum. Indeed it was such a nice experience. The highlight of it was the soft-shell crab production and true enough ...my first time to place a crab in my hand. No fear! So soft that when cooked every part of it is edible.Beautiful scenery was seen along the way. In my assessment, it was a very nice experience to see the improvement of the mangrove forest conservation area in this part of Tagum. The water is garbage free. Along the side closer to the riverbank was well utilized for the care of fingerlings before it is transferred to the bigger ponds.A welcoming opportunity to all nature lovers to be there. Choose the early morning schedule. Booking at least two days before the scheduled time is advisable.
