Enjoy the magic of the holiday season during Adventure Aquarium’s Christmas Celebration! Get into the yuletide spirit with Scuba Santa and his elves, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer — and, of course, plenty of sharks, fish and sea turtles!

Santa will practice his scuba diving in the Aquarium’s 760,000-gallon Ocean Realm exhibit, swimming with sea turtles, hammerhead and tiger sharks and plenty of fish.

Meet Scuba Santa

Santa dons his scuba gear for a swim in the 760,000-gallon Ocean Realm Dive Theater during one of the favorite annual holiday traditions at the aquarium. Get up close to the glass to see Scuba Santa as he swims with Great Hammerhead sharks, sea turtles and stingrays.
