Sleepovers at The Marine Mammal Center


Seals & Slippers: Sleep under the Stars at The Marine Mammal Center!

Last fall we piloted our first ever sleepover at The Marine Mammal Center, which we call Seals & Slippers. It's a great chance to camp out with the seals and sea lions!

In this unique program, lucky families get to camp out under the stars and take part in a variety of educational programs. The evening includes conducting fish dissections in the Necropsy Lab and enjoying a healthy dinner in our Commons. The parents and children even get to observe the night crew take care of the animals at the 8:00pm feeding!

In the morning, breakfast is served, followed by an invigorating hike down to Rodeo Lagoon and Rodeo Beach. We end the program back at the Center, where you will be able to enjoy some time in our gift store—you will receive 10% off as a special thank you—before saying goodbye. It is a truly memorable adventure for the families who take part!

Sleepovers Include:

  • Overnight stay in our outdoor courtyard
  • Observe patients' evening feeding session
  • Dinner, dessert and continental breakfast
  • Guided Hike around Rodeo Lagoon
  • Special behind-the-scenes activities (no direct animal interaction)
  • 10% off in our gift store
