On this small tour for up to 6 participants, a Mote educator will guide you through the morning routine at the aquarium, as our biologists prep for the day. You’ll learn about your favorite sea creatures, have all of your ocean questions answered, and possibly even catch a glimpse of our animal-care team doing their morning rounds! Finally, you will have an opportunity to interact with some of Mote's animal ambassadors. This is a walking tour and will take place both indoors and outdoors and runs rain or shine. Cool, comfortable clothing and footwear, as well as a reusable water bottle are recommended. Pre-registration is required and tours meet promptly at 8:30 a.m. in front of the Aquarium.
