We're making exciting progress toward creating our new, Mote Science Education Aquarium (Mote SEA)!Learn More
Our manatees, sharks, sea turtles and otters are ready to meet you 365 days a year at Mote Aquarium, located just minutes from downtown Sarasota and Lido Beach. Visitors can explore touch pools, hands-on exhibits and windows into the science and conservation of Mote Marine Laboratory. Come have a blast and discover why Science Is The Attraction!
By protecting our reefs, we protect our oceans; and the precious life in them.
Mote events combine science, education and fun! Check out our events throughout the year, including many virtual events you can enjoy from the comfort of home.
