Ever dreamed of sleeping with the sharks? ZZZs in the Seas is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to sleep among sharks, stingrays, seahorses and all the other creatures snoozing in our seas. The fun filled night begins with check-in at 7:00 p.m. and includes a light snack, drinks, self-guided scavenger hunt and flashlight tour, a movie, and then sweet sea-themed dreams. Wake up and join us for breakfast before the adventure ends at 8:00 a.m. If sharks aren’t your idea of a relaxing nights sleep, feel free to slumber next to any of our other exhibits.
