This activity-filled overnight adventure is every shark lover's dream!
Discover the truths surrounding these top ocean predators. Take part in hands-on activities in our Shark Discovery Lab and crafts station. With an expert guide, take a nocturnal prowl through the Aquarium’s behind-the-scenes areas, including a visit to the food prep area to learn how we care for and feed our sharks.
Dare to walk the catwalk, where sharks swim silently just inches below you. Try your best to fall asleep knowing creatures of the deep are lurking close by. After breakfast, test your shark knowledge with an Aquarium version of Jeopardy!

Call Ahead to Confirm
The health of the animals is our primary concern; therefore, any tour may be canceled or modified without notice if it is in the animals' best interest.
If the Aquarium cancels your program, you will have the option of rescheduling for another date or receiving a full refund. To ensure that your tour has not been canceled due to inclement weather or unforeseen events, please call 410-576-8822 two hours prior to the program time on the day of your visit. If you miss your tour due to late arrival, no refund can be provided.
