We just LOVE the ocean, and at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, you can get up close to the amazing marine animals AND the scientists who are working hard to look after them!
The Mote Aquarium is filled with fascinating exhibits that will allow kids and the family to explore the incredible creatures of the oceans.
Because the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium is also a working lab, you can even meet the scientists, and see the scientific research as it happens, throughout the working laboratories!
Pretty cool, and what a great way to enjoy some education!
Kids can explore the predators of the ocean in the Shark Zone exhibit, and enjoy an interactive experience with the two touch tanks where kids can actually feel what come of the creatures are like!
There are touchable rays, as well as an exhibit all on the reef animals. Kids can watch the cheeky otters play, or see what really lives in Florida Bay.
Don’t miss a stop at the sea turtles too, and learn about how these beautiful animals have been around for longer than you think!
From river explorations, to the seas, and even an exhibit on the circles of life, the Mote Aquarium really has some amazing experiences for the kids, and you don’t even have to get wet here to explore the oceans!
So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to make a SPLASH?
