This Father’s Day treat your dad to a FIN-tastic day at Mote Aquarium! Come visit all the animals, learn about the importance of our oceans and make memories that will last a lifetime.

All dads get free admission to Mote Aquarium with the purchase of their accompanied child’s ticket on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18. (Party must include one paid ticket per free ticket.) Just stop by the admissions desk with your child to receive your free ticket.
Visit Mote’s newest exhibit, “The Teeth Beneath,” to learn about crocodilians or visit  “Otters and Their Waters” to learn about Mote’s furry otter friends. Nearby, you’ll find “Oh Baby! Life Cycles of the Seas.” There, you can learn about some of the amazing dads (and moms) in the animal kingdom and find out what life is like for parents and babies of many marine species, including jellyfish, corals, sharks and more!

Mote Aquarium is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every day of the year at 1600 Ken Thompson Parkway on City Island, Sarasota. Visitor information and ticket prices.

This Father’s Day offer is valid on June 18 only, and it may not be combined with any other discounts or coupons.
