More awe-inspiring than sleeping under the stars, the Overnight Adventure Program allows groups to spend the night with the most exotic and interesting creatures. Your group will explore hidden treasures of the Aquarium and visit with unique animals from around the world before camping out among amazing sea life. You'll not only walk away the next day with an experience you'll never forget - each guest will receive a free ticket to come back with their parents and share with them what they've learned. Schools, scouts, recreation programs, churches, youth groups, families and aquarium members are invited to bring their sleeping bags and pajamas along with their curiosity and sense of adventure for a Newport Aquarium Overnight Adventure Program.

Things to look forward to during your Overnight Adventure Program:

  • Backstage Animal Experience
  • Guided Aquarium Tour
  • Animal Encounter
  • Surrounded by Sharks or Penguin Presentation
  • Evening snack and light breakfast
  • 15% Discount in the Newport Aquarium Gift shop
