Dolphin Sleepover


Have a Slumber Party With Your New Best Friends

Spend an unforgettable night with the Aquarium’s dolphins! This fun-filled evening begins with a stop in Dolphin Discovery where you’ll get an insider’s look at how our dolphins learn and play.

Throughout the night, you’ll explore behind-the-scenes areas and take part in hands-on activities in our Dolphin Discovery Lab. If you’re feeling brave, you’ll even have the chance to walk the catwalk over Shark Alley where sharks swim silently below.

Fall asleep in one of our underwater viewing areas, and get an early view of the dolphins when you help open the curtains to Dolphin Discovery in the morning. After breakfast, join our marine mammal experts for a special private session with the dolphins.
