Private Overnight Adventures

Explore the Living Coast after dark!20190913_193550

After a full evening of hands-on activities and animal encounters, your group will snuggle down in your sleeping bags for a movie before drifting off to sleep. The next morning, your group will enjoy a continental breakfast and more opportunities to meet local wildlife up-close. 

Call 619-409-5908 to reserve a spot for your group of 15 or more. 


Three themes to choose from:

Sweetwater Snooze

Sea Turtle Slumber Party

Explore the world of the endangered green sea turtle through turtle games and crafts and stories, a hike through the refuge to San Diego Bay and a rare opportunity to meet the Living Coast Discovery Center’s sea turtles (and other critters) up-close!

Go Green

Support a sustainable planet by creating your own reusable bag and cleaning up your own private beach. Meet two animals who are often affected by habitat destruction and learn how you can help them.

Mysterious Midnight at the Marsh (offered Sept-Nov.)

The sun sets early and we celebrate with ‘spooky’ animal encounters, night hikes through the marsh, a mysterious scavenger hunt, slimy dissection, and more!
