Sleep with the Sharks
An Overnight Aquarium Experience Awaits You!
The Aquarium after dark is an exciting place to be – certain animals will come out of hiding while others seem to disappear from sight. Spend the night at the Aquarium and enjoy the unique opportunity to journey through Aquarium exhibits after dark. Witness changes in shark behavior from day to night, observe how certain creatures are more active when the lights go out, learn about marine animals, help a marine naturalist feed turtles and rays, and delight in an evening filled with ocean-themed activities, hands-on marine life lessons, crafts, and a movie. When it’s lights out, participants will dive into their sleeping bags and drift away to an undersea slumber while gazing at the enchanting Open Ocean exhibit or the mesmerizing Sea Jelly exhibit.
