By booking one of our unique overnight events, your group can have the entire Aquarium to yourselves, freeing you up to explore the exhibits with touchpool experiences, scavenger hunts, animal encounters, and more.

When it’s time to turn in for the night, participants will roll out their sleeping bags in designated areas throughout the Aquarium, before drifting off among peaceful fish and the soothing sounds of rushing water. With a 7:00 a.m. wake-up call, participants will have just enough time to pack up their gear, enjoy a continental breakfast and work on a brief wrap-up activity before departing or continuing to explore the building.

At a cost of $45 per youth participant & $25 per adult chaperone (minimum cost of $700), rates are comparable to even the most modest of local accommodations.
