About This Campus

Surrounded by the beautiful Sarasota Bay, Mote’s main campus encompasses 10.5 acres on City Island, Sarasota. Here, every facet of Mote’s mission thrives—from world-class marine research and conservation to accessible public education and outreach. City Island has been our home since 1978, and southwest Florida has been our home from the very start, when Mote was founded in Placida in 1955.
