Aquarium Sleepover 2017

Monterey Bay Aquarium and (optional) Pizza Dinner

Saturday March 25 - Sunday March 26, 2017

Arrive 7pm-8pm Saturday -- Leave by 8:30am Sunday


The Sierra Expedition will have a sleepover at the Monterey Bay Aquarium! This is one of the best events of the year! 

About the Sleepover

Enjoy the Monterey Bay Aquarium after hours where you and your daughter(s) can “sleep with the fishes.” We will have access to most public areas of the aquarium where we can explore without the crush of daytime crowds. A bedtime snack will be provided as will a late-night nature movie. In the morning, a continental breakfast will be served before our departure at 8:30am.  We have reserved 150 spots, so not every one of our 215 members will be able to go. Make your reservations early.  If more than 150 people register, the last ones to register will be allowed to go only if there is space available. So register now to secure your spot!

Participants will receive a wristband that will allow them to visit the Aquarium free of charge on Sunday.  If you want to visit the Aquarium on Saturday before the sleepover, you'll need to purchase a separate day pass or use your annual pass. 

An optional pizza dinner will be held at Gianni’s Pizza Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 5:45pm. Please register and pay for this dinner at the same time you register for the sleepover.
