Spend a Night Sleeping With the Fishes. Literally!

April 2, 2016
This is one of the Best competitions…I won’t enter because I am terrified of Sharks but this is amazing!

Check this out!

The Space
Ever gaze into an aquarium and wonder what it’s like to live under water? Imagine yourself submerged in three million liters, in an aquarium ten meters deep, alongside 35 of the most majestic creatures on Earth: sharks! Experience what it’s like, even for a night, to live amongst these feared creatures. This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sleep in a underwater bedroom, where the only thing separating you from your neighbors is the 360-degree transparent wall.

On April 11th, 12th and 13th, the Aquarium de Paris is hosting the first-ever sleepover in our Shark Aquarium. Your home for the night is unlike any other ever built: a peaceful enclosure with a large cylindrical bed and breathtaking, immersive views of your new sharp-toothed friends.

Three lucky winners and their guests will be welcomed by host, Fred Buyle, a world record-breaking freediver, underwater photographer, and shark enthusiast. He’ll dance alongside the sharks, the ideal introduction to your neighbors for the night. Once you’re settled, Fred and one of our marine biologists will guide you on a tour through the aquarium, and provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of sharks: how they live, why they’re so misunderstood, and their importance to the ocean’s ecosystem.

During check-in, you’ll be shown to your bedroom for the night. Our home is your home, so get comfortable, as your host will dive into the tank and formally introduce you to a few of your neighbors for the evening. You’ll enjoy an intimate meal inside our aquarium, with gorgeous tank-side views of your favorite neighbors.

Opened in 1867 and located in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Aquarium de Paris was the first built anywhere in the world. Your submarine bedroom will live on even after you leave, acting as an observatory for our biologists to study the behaviors of these majestic fish.

How can you be the first to ever spend a night at home with the sharks? Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and why you belong with the sharks for a night by 11:59 p.m. CET on April 3rd, 2016.
Not local? No worries. We’ll fly the winners in from anywhere in the world.

House Rules

  • No selfies after dark. Remember, sharks are sensitive to light. 
  • Avoid seeing Jaws before your sleepover. They’re kinder than you think! 
  • No sleepwalking or night swimming. 
  • Don’t eat the chum. 
  • No diving. 
  • Keep your heads and feet in the bedroom at all times. 
  • Sheep can’t swim, so count sharks instead. 
  • Don’t take the bait.

Guest Access
You and your guest should be over 18 years old, medically fit and able to climb into and out of the bedroom. Note that for safety reasons, the winner and their guest must not exceed 190 kilograms or 418 lbs. You must be available to spend the night on April 11-13.

Other Things to Note
Submissions should be between 50-550 characters or less in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese and 50-300 character or less in Chinese (Simplified or Traditional), Japanese or Korean.
