|PRESENTATION: Scheduled customized presentation by Dr. Nick Whitney a Mote Marine Staff Biologist. Learn about shark research and other facts to satisfy your curiosity about this creature most of us fear in the water.
FIELD TRIP: At Mote, you can explore the secrets of the sea through touch pools, viewable-working labs and high-tech interactive exhibits that showcase the world-renown research of Mote Marine Laboratory. See sharks, dolphins, manatees and sea turtles, along with more than 100 other species of marine life.
Florida has nurse sharks, bull sharks, blacktips and sandbar sharks - among others - and you can get closer than you'd like at Mote's 135,000-gallon shark habitat. This exhibit is also home to the world's largest group species, the Goliath grouper (yes, he's a cousin to Florida's favorite seafood dish) and some of the world's most sporting fish: tarpon, snook and redfish. That's nearly a grand slam, by local angling lore.
