Once in a lifetime experience with manatees
2021年6月
I should preface this review by noting that I absolutely love manatees and planned my trip to line up with when the center reopened following COVID restrictions. That said, I couldn’t recommend this experience enough. Our group signed up for the manatee caretaker for a day experience (it’s not really a day… only 2- 2 ½ hours) and it was a wonderful experience. At the time we visited, they had three adorable manatee calves, resident adult Guacara, and a menagerie of other animals. Just the chance to be so close to manatee calves is a once and a lifetime experience that I won’t forget and it is topped by the opportunity to help prepare the food and feed Guacara (an interaction that understandably isn’t permitted for non-resident manatees for their safety and security and is incredibly rare to find). Because of some of the efforts to help with Guacara’s veterinary care, we also got to see his gigantic personality (like putting his nostrils at the surface of the water to get food after learning the behavior for COVID tests).

I’ve seen past reviews complain about the price, but this isn’t a large, commercialized excursion. It is a tour at a small research and conservation center where we got the chance to learn about their work and see the animals under their care. The individuals working at the center clearly put time and effort into the visit. More importantly, the money that you are spending is going back to care for the wonderful animals we met. I’d pay for this experience any day over giving my money to a large, commercialized excursion – it’s educational, unique, and certainly worth the drive over to Bayamon.

Excellent Opportunity to Learn and Give Back!
2020年1月
I have a strange infinity for elephants. I also have an infinity for manatees. Whenever I travel and find opportunities to meet them, I take all the time to do so.
During my stay in Puerto Rico, I had to priceless opportunity to volunteered at the Manatee Conservation Center of Puerto Rico. My guide, Annilu, had a wealth of knowledge about how we can help these beautiful sea mammals, what they do in this facility to rehabilitate them, and how they are related to elephants 😳
Why do I have an infinity for these giant gray creatures? I might never know the answer to that, but the feeling I get when I’m around them is pure love. I feel genuine love and compassion towards them.
I'd highly recommend anyone traveling to PR to visit the facility and to give back - You can easily book this through AirBnB Experience!

A very fun way to spend an afternoon!
2020年2月 • 夫妻情侣
We spent yesterday afternoon with Dinah and the team at the Manatee Conservation Center. While there, we learned about the manatees, turtles and pelicans in their care and how they came to the center, many were hit by boats! We cut up fruits and vegetables and fed the animals. We also helped take the animal’s temperature and watched as Dinah fed a baby manatee formula from a bottle. Very cute. We definitely left with the sense that caring for these animals was a labor of love for all the staff and student volunteers. Great for kids of all ages but probably best for kids above age 10.

Baby Manatee Rescued
2019年12月
We look for manatees in the Condado Lagoon every time we walk across the Dos Hermanos Bridge and decided to visit the Manatee Conservation Center as a Christmas week activity. We booked a tour online in advance and received confirmation by text and email. The Center is located on the Bayamon campus of Inter American University and it is an impressive research facility. The tour guide was wonderful and the center was bustling with activity as a baby manatee had just been rescued that morning. We couldn't have planned a better day for a visit. We got to see the new baby manatee while the scientists and doctors were examining it with love and compassion. In the pools and cages outside we saw 3 large manatees, 4 sea turtles, and 4 pelicans that have been rescued and rehabilitated and most will be released back into their natural habitat.

This is really an educational visit. All proceeds go to save the manatees and other marine life that needs help. The staff is fantastic and they love what they do. Bless them!

Educational Experience with Adorable Manatees
2019年12月
I visited with my parents and grandmother. The tour was in English and the tour guide gave great info about the manatees, turtles, and pelicans they have at the center. The guide told us where they rescued the animals from, the conditions they were in, the treatment they've received, and the process for letting them free once they've been rehabilitated. There was not a lot of walking involved, which suited my elderly grandmother who walks with a cane.

By chance, the day we took the tour they were brining in a 1-week old manatee that had been called in that morning to be rescued somewhere on the island. The center was hectic with the vets and volunteers getting ready to treat the baby manatee. We got to see the adorable baby manatee right when she arrived. It was sad that she'd been abandoned but happy that she was getting help.

Great place to visit if you want to learn more about manatees, and the entry fee is a donation to the center!

Kids loved it!
2019年4月 • 家庭
My son is a manatee lover, so we had to squeeze this into our trip. It was easy to schedule (even last minute) and find. Our guide was great, and the tour was customized to the knowledge level of the audience. It was a little sad, but real. We all walked away knowing a little more about manatees than we did before. And both my boys enjoyed the tour.

A Magical & Educational Experience
2018年12月 • 家庭
My family and I booked the Caretaker for a Day Experience and truly enjoyed it. They gave us t-shirts to wear and took photos of us (which they e-mailed afterwards to share with friends and family), educated us on the sea life that they rescue and care for, and even allowed us to participate in preparing and serving food to the manatees and a pelican. It was a truly magical experience that reminded us of the importance of being responsible and good to the environment. A special gracias to Andrew for making sure that everything for our visit went smoothly! :)

Sad to see
2018年6月 • 家庭
This is much like visiting any orphanage or rehab facility. These absolutely harmless animals have been orphaned or injured to the point where they cannot survive on their own; in at least one case, a lung injury means it can never be released into the wild and his "world" is forever a circular twenty foot tank.

It can certainly be argued that humans need aid and care and providing such to these animals should be a low priority, Unfortunately, these animals have a bleak future as a species without the care they receive; as the saying goes, "Extinction is forever!" The tour reinforces the TLC these animals receive from a. dedicated group of volunteers, in diet, medications and environment.

As you leave the center you feel sad to know about the conditions of the Antillean manatees, but you are heartened to see the care they receive. If you visit - donate. Become part of the solution, not the problem. It is accessible to those with mobility issues. It is located about 30 minutes from San Juan's cruise ship docks so is a great pre-, post-cruise tour. Takes about 1 to 1-1/2 hours. About half the tour is indoors.
