Buhatan River Cruise | Things to do in Sorsogon City-Sorsogon

Buhatan River Cruise (2) Buhatan River Cruise (1) Buhatan River Cruise (3)
Buhatan River is an eco-adventure tour with the river cruise being its highlight activity. Experience lounging on a raft with cushioned seats as it gets pulled by a small boat downstream. The lush mangrove vegetation dominates the scenery with the occasional bird sighting. On-board, local snacks are served—an interesting mix of local treats, which includes pili nuts, cassava and taro chips, and a fresh serving of cold lemongrass juice. The tour covers 3.9 kilometers per way, and this slow-paced journey's destination is the floating bamboo restaurant at the mouth of Sorsogon Bay. Here, a feast awaits visitors where only the freshest mud crabs, oysters, tilapia, and shrimps from the river are served. The recommended itinerary for the river cruise is to start the tour late in the afternoon. Doing so allows guests to experience in one go the river scenery in broad daylight, a gorgeous sunset view, and enchanting fireflies come night time.

Nearby attractions

Sorsogon City Hall
2.99 km away

Aside from being a venue to avail of city government services, the Sorsogon City Hall grounds is open to the public for simple recreational activities. Located away from the bustling city center, the atmosphere here is calmer compared to the other public spaces found in the city. The park is nothing too grand but its manicured lawn is a pleasant enough place to unwind on late afternoons especially for families with small kids. The perimeter on the other hand is wide enough for exercise activities and is also an ideal place to run a few laps.

Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral
4.96 km away

Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, also known as Sorsogon Cathedral, is the seat of the Diocese of Sorsogon. Its most distinguishable feature structure-wise is its dome-shaped tower, which closely resembles that of St. Peter Basilica in Vatican. It is a landmark that dominates Sorsogon City's skyline and can easily be spotted from the Rompeolas baywalk.

5.09 km away

What used to be an old pier is now a kilometer-long baywalk with picturesque views of the sea and Mt. Bulusan across the bay. Rompeolas is now a tidy locale for enjoying strolls plus a few other activities like kayaking and, on special occasions, events like film screenings and concerts. Like the Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Complex, this spot provides tourists with plenty of opportunities to people-watch and interact with Sorsogoanos. If not on the baywalk, residents would likely spend the time lazily at the nearby food court enjoying street food and other popular merienda meals with friends or family. Late afternoons is when Rompeolas gets really crowded with people anticipating the sunset, which is particularly beautiful in this part of the city.
