Remember those daydream underwater adventures you had as a kid? Well, the Oregon Coast Aquarium is making them a reality. Picture this: you're tucked in for the night, and just a glass panel away are sharks, rays, and maybe a wolf eel giving you the side-eye. It's like being in your own personal submarine, but comfier!

This isn't your usual sleepover; it's an underwater extravaganza in the Passages of the Deep exhibit. It's not just about catching Z's with sea creatures either. You'll get to enjoy special after-hours tours and activities that will make your Instagram followers green with envy.

After a three-year break (thanks, COVID-19), the most buzzed-about program at the Aquarium is back and better than ever!

Here's the lowdown: these one-of-a-kind sleepovers are happening Tuesdays and Thursdays, plus the first and third Friday of every month. But hey, it's exclusive – only 20 to 60 lucky fish fans can join each night, so you'll have to reserve your spot.

Get more information about the Sleep In The Deep program at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, see the calendar, and reserve your spot for a sleepover here.
