How the membership works:

  • Who can use the membership?  You may list up to two named individuals who are 16 years or older on the membership card. One of the named individuals MUST be present in order to use the membership.

  • What do I need to bring with me to use the membership? One of the named members must present the membership card and a valid photo ID at time of check-in.

  • How to Use Guest Passes:
    - Guest passes are only available for the new level pricing 
          - New and renewing members cannot use the guest passes the same day the 
            membership is purchased 
          - Member cardholder must be present to use the guest passes 
          - Valid for general admission only, excludes all events

  • How many cards will I receive? Each membership level comes with one membership card; a second card can be purchased for $5. If you do not have your card on you at Mote, we can always verify your membership status using your driver’s license (not available at reciprocals). 

  • When will I receive my membership card(s)? Your membership card(s) will arrive in 5-10 business days from the date of purchase. You may use the email confirmation from your online purchase to gain entrance to the Aquarium the same day you purchase the membership.
  • Caretaker option: Available on Party of 4 (Manatee Family) or higher levels. To purchase, you may visit the Aquarium or call the membership office. The caretaker will be issued a membership card to be used when accompanying member's children younger than 16.
