We are tremendously thankful that Mote Aquarium will be able to reopen to the public on Saturday, October 1, during normal operating hours (9:30 AM - 5:00 PM), following our closure for preparation and response to Hurricane Ian. Unfortunately, our Sharktoberfest event, which was scheduled for October 1, will be postponed. If you have purchased a ticket, please check your email for more information. Our thoughts and best wishes are with our friends, family, partners and all of those who are continuing to manage recovery efforts. Any additional updates about reopening will be provided via social media: @MoteMarineLab on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
