Family sleepover at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Celebrate World Oceans Day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium! Come with your family or group of 12 or more and enjoy special evening activities and programs highlighting animals found all over the world. We'll lead you on a special tour as you go behind the scenes and learn how we care for our animals here at the Aquarium. The evening will end with a light bedtime snack followed by a late-night nature movie. In the morning, wake up with the fishes and enjoy a continental breakfast in the Cafe.
