Breakfast with the Sharks and Mornings at Mote
$45

Rise & dive! Start your day with our sharks before the Aquarium opens to the public. You and your chums will have a great time as you sink your teeth into a continental breakfast, explore cool shark artifacts such as jaws and skin, watch a narrated feeding at our Shark Tracker exhibit, and have your own personal Q&A with a Mote educator and shark expert. After breakfast, you’ll learn about the breakthrough research going on at Mote during a guided tour of our Aquarium. Spend as much time as you like after your breakfast and tour, as admission to Mote Aquarium and Goldstein Marine Mammal Center is included. Mako no bones about it: you’ll have a blast at our Breakfast with the Sharks!

SHARK ENCOUNTER
$49
Cost: $35 for members, $49 for non-members (Cost includes admission to The Aquarium)

You can be chef to the sharks and find out how they get their vitamins during our Shark Encounter, a behind-the-scenes program atop the 135,000-gallon shark habitat in Mote Aquarium. And don’t worry — our sharks’ favorite food is fish! Up to three guests may join Mote staff to prepare brunch for our sharks and large fish, including blacknose, nurse and sandbar sharks, southern stingrays, tarpon, snook, goliath grouper and more. Guests will learn about shark biology, care, feeding and research from elasmobranch specialists. Participants in Shark Encounter will help Mote’s aquarium biologists feed the sharks during our public narrated training session — a special program where sharks are trained to swim toward patterned targets to receive their food.
