Associacao Peixe-Boi, Porto de Pedras

(4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Well, this seemed to be a must have experience, but when we arrived we found out that our booking wasn´t made and the staff was confused, unprepared and not too interested in solving the problem. Afte...  more »
  • The Manatee is one of the most endangered mammals is therefore a unique opportunity to visit you in your natural habitat and still be able to help the Association to preserve it. It's really exciting to see one be so docile that practically was decimated by human being and know that today there are people fighting for your stay on the planet. More than recommend a visit.

  • Wonderful to meet the Association's work. It was very fun to see the animals up close and get to know a little more about them.

  • 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.
