Sleep With The Sharks
You'll have the Aquarium to yourself as you travel through our exhibits on a scavenger hunt; participate in hands-on activities led by professional and knowledgeable staff, and experience early morning behind-the-scenes at the Aquarium! After a fun-filled evening exploring life under the ocean, be lulled to sleep by the soothing sights of our Passages of the Deep tunnels. All of our sleepovers include a full dinner with vegetarian options. A late snack and a light breakfast are also provided.
