Doze with the Dolphins/Slumber with the Sharks

What happens at Sea Life Park after sundown? Do dolphins doze? Do sharks slumber? Discover the answers to these and other questions by participating in Sea Life Park’s exciting overnight program! Sea Life Park is the perfect field trip venue near Honolulu to learn about animals’ nocturnal behaviors, embark on a flashlight twilight tour, explore the anatomy of a squid and set sail on a scavenger hunt. “Dozers” can choose to sleep next to the dolphins at our Hawaii Ocean Theatre, curl up alongside out Shark Tank, or pitch a tent in our Makapu’u Meadows. The program times and events can vary depending upon requests.

*$60/participant including an evening snack and breakfast. Chaperones are charged for meals only.
