    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
    • Infants must sit on laps
    • Not wheelchair accessible
    • Porpoises are sensitive animals and aiming at the safety of visitors and the welfare of the animals, some care is necessary:
    • Do not feed them;
    • Do not scream;
    • Do not intentionally touch them;
    • Do not use sunscreen, repellent, body cream or oil. When in contact with certain products, porpoises have their eyes and smell attacked.
    • In the period of ebb there is a phenomenon in the rivers called Piracema (fish migratory movement) which influences, in some cases, the porpoises to follow a shoal that is passing through, and for that reason does not appear as usual in the lakes where visitors are taken for this interaction; that is, there are possibilities of not interacting with these animals, a fact that we can only conclude on the spot on the day of the tour.
    • Regardless of weather conditions, Tours will take place normally. The above schedules may change due to weather, access, or other factors that the company believes may interfere with the safety or well-being of passengers.
