Join WGCU for a day of marine education and exploration as we go On The Road to visit the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. The day begins with a two-hour private eco-boat tour through Sarasota and Roberts Bays to learn about Florida ecology and wildlife and concludes with a tour of the Mote Aquarium. (Lunch is on your own – Mote has a restaurant onsite)

Eco-Boat Tour: Joined by a marine biologist we will cruise through Sarasota and Roberts Bays to learn about the ecology, history, and folklore of the area. Our guide will then lead the group on a short nature walk on an uninhabited island and then provide an opportunity to collect samples of marine life with a trawl net to observe and handle some of the curious residents of Sarasota Bay.

Trip includes: charter bus transportation, private boat tour and tour of the aquarium. This trip is limited to only 30 people. Reservation deadline is February 24, 2019.
