Dive into The Deep with an organised group sleepover and bed down for the night next to amazing sharks, rays and turtles!  

Sleepovers cost £25 per child. You must provide a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 8 children. The minimum number of children varies dependent on the night of the week as follows. Adult places cost £5.50.

Sunday to Wednesday - a minimum of 60 children

Thursday - a minimum of 90 children

Friday & Saturday - a minimum of 100 children

Please note - Your booking is subject to you providing a sufficient number of suitably trained, qualified and insured adults to care overnight for the group (including those under the age of 8) in line with all relevant legal requirements and that the children will be under your care and supervision throughout the evening. 


For just £4.50 per child, you can add a 40 minute educational workshop for your group - choose from a selection of Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 sessions below. Please note this option is only available to school groups and affects the itinerary slightly, meaning arrival time is an hour earlier than displayed below.
