At Mote Aquarium you can explore the secrets of the sea through touch pools, viewable working labs, and high-tech interactive exhibits that showcase the world-renowned research of the adjoining Mote Marine Laboratory. See more than 100 marine species – most found in Florida waters – including sharks, dolphins, manatees, sea turtles and fish of all shapes and sizes. At Mote’s new exhibit, Sea Turtles: Ancient Survivors, guests can visit real sea turtles and learn how these ancient creatures outlived the dinosaurs, but need our help to survive today. General admission includes access to Mote Aquarium, the Ann and Alfred Goldstein Marine Mammal Research and Rehabilitation Center and the Immersion Cinema. The Cinema is a high-tech theater where you can enjoy group games on touch screens and see the underwater action play out on a 40 foot wide HD movie screen. Mote offers a variety of educational programs for people of all ages, as well as volunteer and internship opportunities.
