Mote has 2 resident dolphins. Harley above and Moonshine below. They were injured and stranded as babies and after rehabilitation they were not able to be released back in wild. Moonshine's back is covered in old sunburn scares. They do not do tricks and there is no show. You can, however, see them playing on their own.
There are 2 permanently injured manatees at Mote and they love to come up to the window and look at you.
You can get really close to some cool sharks. Below is a picture of one of the sharks being fed in their learning program.
