For those who’d like to tuck-in for a longer visit, “Sleeping with the Fishes” offers a unique, kid-friendly experience. Drift to sleep beneath the two-story Cape Fear Shoals where sharks, rays and a sea turtle swim. Guests learn about the Aquarium’s unique animals, create a t-shirt craft and watch a movie before bedtime. Enjoy a private, guided tour of the Aquarium before it opens to the public. Snacks and breakfast are provided. “Sleeping with the Fishes” runs from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. and is recommended for 10-30 guests. One adult per 10 children is required. The program costs $45 per person.
