TEMPORARILY ON HOLD

sleep with sharks

DO SHARKS SLEEP?

Find out for yourself when you spend the night at Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach! Count sharks instead of sheep as you drift off to sleep in our Dangerous Reef Tunnel in the exciting overnight adventure! Unlock the mysteries of the Aquarium at night through learning activities designed to meet the needs of any age group from 3 to 103!

After a fun-filled night including a dive show, scavenger hunt, and late night activity, drift off to sleep while sharks keep a watchful eye on you!
