Bedding Down Saturday Night:
Evening activities end no earlier than 12:00 AM.
"Camp" is setup after the aquarium closes.
We will be sleeping on the floor along the length of the shark lagoon tunnel. Those people suffering from back problems may bring a twin sized air mattress if they desire. Space is limited in the Shark Lagoon Tunnel. As a result, air mattresses will enter the tunnel after all sleeping bags have been arranged.
Please note that if too many air mattresses are brought everyone may not fit in the tunnel/exhibit. Due to this we only allow adults to bring and use TWIN size air mattresses.
They do NOT allow guests to sleep anywhere besides the Shark Lagoon Tunnel (for the Sleep With the Sharks program). It is at the staff’s discretion as to whether air mattresses will fit depending on the size of the group.
There are no electronics allowed in the tunnel during sleeping hours this includes all cellphones (including chaperones).
Wake up is at 7:00 am.
Once up, get ready for the day, pack up gear and bring back to storage area. Adult chaperones are not to get up earlier and wander around the Aquarium.
Sleep With the Sharks ends at 8:45 am.
You are allowed to reenter the Aquarium after the sleepover has concluded. The sleepover fee includes Aquarium admission!
The group will need to pack all of their belongings and take them to the groups vehicles at the end of the program. They will need to reenter at the front entrance for admission.
