Imagine exploring Mystic Aquarium after hours when all the visitors have left for the evening. Our private overnight experiences are the perfect way for scout troops, families, schools, or any group of up to 60 people, to see what happens when the lights go out and the animals settle in for the night.

Greeted by your Aquarium hosts, your night will include educational programming with a theme of your choice, exploration time in the Aquarium’s main gallery, a visit to the Jurassic Giants, and an evening snack before you tuck into your sleeping bags and sleep in front of your favorite indoor exhibit.  In the morning, you will enjoy a continental breakfast and tour the outdoor exhibits to visit the beluga whales, seals, and sea lions.  All overnight attendees will also receive a patch and free admission to the Aquarium for the following morning.

Although educational programming activities are geared for youth ages 5-12, programs can be tailored to meet your group’s needs.  Please note that our overnight programs cannot accommodate youth under 5 years of age.

Children must be accompanied by a paid adult (children must be at least 5 years old to participate) at a minimum ratio of 1 chaperone to 5 children.

Please remember to eat prior to checking-in as dinner is not provided during the overnight.  An evening snack and a continental breakfast are provided.

Pre-registration is required.

The cost of the private overnight experience is $5,300.00 for up to 60 people.  Your group will purchase an entire overnight that accommodates up to 60 people. Have a larger group? For an additional $1,325.00, you can increase the maximum number of participants to 75, with a total fee of $6,625.00. 

We do require a $500.00 deposit at the time of booking. Once the deposit has been paid and confirmed, you will receive an email from the Education & Conservation team with detailed information regarding the program, final payment due date, and a roster template.

Your final payment will be due 4 weeks after you have booked the event. The final payment may be paid by check or with a credit card but please note one final payment is required. If you need more time for final payment, you must contact us for permission.
