Within the oceans’ depths live intriguing species such as the Antarctic sea-gorilla, the Mediterranean fighting cactus, and the 1975 Ford Tempo that purrs like an octopus. Mingle with aquatic marvels at comfortable altitudes with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one admission to Mote Aquarium at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota (up to a $17 value). General admission includes access to Mote Aquarium, the Ann and Alfred E. Goldstein Marine Mammal Research and Rehabilitation Center, and Immersion Cinema. Children younger than 4 are regularly admitted free without this Groupon.

More than 100 marine species await curious land dwellers at Mote Marine Laboratory and Mote Aquarium, where children and adults alike can explore the world's oceanic contents via touch pools, viewable working conservation labs, and high-tech interactive exhibits. Visitors can wrap their wide eyes around shark-training sessions at 11 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays or stop by any day to lend moral support to ancient species of sea turtles that have outlived dinosaurs and boy bands but face many modern threats. Hands are surprisingly soothed by the velvety texture of stingrays at the touch pool, and jaws drop at the multicolored menagerie hiding within Florida’s reefs. Behold the impressive intelligence of Moonshine and Harley, Mote's two resident dolphins and winners of the Nobel Prize in Napkin Literature.
