(500+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Visit Associacao Peixe-Boi for an up close look at a manatee specie in danger of extinction. This ecotourism site is also home to a project aimed at protecting the endangered mammal and its disappearing mangrove habitat. Project staff can take you on a boat tour up the river, where you are likely to come face-to-face with this creature. Manatees are free to roam these waters and tend to spend a lot of time asleep at the bottom of the river. Project members maintain several rafts along the shore, which the docile animals approach at the sight of visitors. Keep in mind that feeding and touching the manatees is strictly forbidden, though you can photograph them. Bring your children along for a real-life lesson in environmental conservation. Put Associacao Peixe-Boi into our Porto de Pedras trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Site is full of treats to take to friends and relatives. And you still keep the project. Sorry, that just leaves the shop.

  • Extremely interesting project, worth the visit! Walk through the mangroves, which in itself are very attractive. We saw the manatees, which seem to be the sweetness in "bug". Some are released into the sea and are sometimes in swimming pools that are after the ebb tide.

  • This project as well as many other famous is responsible for the preservation of this kind of mammal. The initiative began through the host Luciano Huck and it comes to a raft ride on the value of 50.00 per person R$ where in addition to know the whole story, if you're lucky you can still have contact with some docile animals that are carefully monitored in the environment that almost your faithfully reproduces natural habitat. It's worth a lot to the visitation, because all income is reversed in the mammalian need inputs, anyway at all that is necessary for survival gives species.

  • Tivemos a sorte de ter o Biólogo conversando com a gente durante nosso percurso. Conhecemos detalhes sobre a vida, alimentação e hábitos do peixe boi marinho e a sua importância para a vida marinha. Projeto importantíssimo de preservação ambiental. Parabéns a todos que fazem este projeto ser tão bem cuidado!!
  • Excelente
  • Achei o valor da entrada muito alto para o passeio. Na recepção falaram em local para tomar banho e não ouve nem menção disso no decorrer do passeio. Mal vimos o peixe boi.
  • Muito bom o trabalho de preservação desenvolvido pela associação, além do turismo ecológico pelas trilhas locais e rio Tatuamunha, para ver o peixe-boi em seu habitat. Em março de 2016, o passeio custa R$ 50,00 por pessoa. Vale muito à pena.
  • A sede simples mais bem cuidada,os funcionários muito atenciosos. O guia ( Platini),os barqueiros todos muitos solícitos. O projeto em sim muito bom.
