ZZZs in the Seas
August 2, 2019 (Registration Now Closed)
Ever dream of sleeping with sharks? ZZZs in the Seas is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where guests can sleep among sharks, stingrays, seahorses, and all the other creatures snoozing in our oceans. The fun-filled night begins with check in at 7 p.m. and includes:
- A light snack
- Self-guided scavenger hunt
- Flashlight tour
- A movie
- Sweet, sea-themed dreams
If sharks aren’t your idea of a relaxing sleep, then feel free to slumber next to any of our other exhibits. Then wake up and join us for breakfast before the adventure ends at 8 a.m.
