Shark Zone Tour

Join us outdoors. Using our portable distance learning studio, we take you directly to the animals, exhibits and habitats around Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. This tour is focused on shark research and care at Mote Aquarium. We begin with a review of the history of shark research a the lab. Then we watch a demonstration of shark husbandry and training with our biologists from atop our 135,000 gallon exhibit. We end with a Question and Answer session with our Ocean Experts.

Shark Zone Tours are currently available only on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, between 8:30 am–9:45 am ET.
