Mote Marine Laboratory Opens Upgraded Manatee County Manatee Habitat

Mote Marine Laboratory Opens Upgraded Manatee County Manatee Habitat

On Sept. 7, International Manatee Day, Mote cut the ribbon to our newly renovated Manatee County Manatee Habitat.

Our renovated manatee habitat features a new and updated look with a brand new kid-friendly play space! There, kids can play on our model airplane and Mote research vessel (aptly named the the R/V Manatee County) and imagine themselves as Mote scientists conducting manatee research surveys.

This renovation was made possible by, and is in recognition of, the growing and strengthening partnership between Mote and Manatee County. 

Visit this month during Half-Off Weekends!

Florida residents can visit Mote Aquarium for half price during weekends in September by using the promo code HALF when reserving tickets online. As always, our amazing members can visit free year-round, and we want to ensure that you can reserve your preferred date and time.

Due to our limited capacity and special discount for Florida residents, we encourage all visitors to reserve your visit as early as possible—especially if you're visiting on Saturday or Sunday in September.
