Sleep With the Sharks

Spend a magical night at the aquarium!

Do sharks snore? Do parrotfish sleep inside a giant ball of snot? Sign up for an overnight slumber party and find out what happens at the aquarium after dark!

Families with children are invited to a finastic slumber party at Maui Ocean center! RSVP to one of our “Sleep with the Sharks” dates. You’ll have the rare chance to explore the Living Reef after dark when nocturnal creatures come out of hiding. You’ll learn about animals that glow, fish that sleep inside bubbles of snot, and how sharks catch some shut-eye. When it’s lights out, dive into your sleeping bag and drift into tidal dreams as sea jellies swim overhead.
