FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS & SUNDAYS, NOVEMBER 29 – DECEMBER 22
plus MONDAY, DECEMBER 23 & TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1 – 2PM

During the winter holidays you expect to hear “ho, ho, hos” echoing through the grocery store, the mall and your office party, but there’s still one place where the sight and sound of a jolly old elf will make even a hardened old scrooge do a double take, and that’s underwater. Guests of all ages are invited to meet Scuba Claus on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, November 29 – December 22, Monday, December 23 and Tuesday, December 24, from 10am – 5pm with Scuba Claus appearances from 1 – 2pm.

Guests can talk to Scuba Claus while he’s in one of the exhibits and ask a question about diving, suggest an item you think would make a great gift for an angelfish, sea star or octopus, or just share a special wish for the holidays. Guests can even snap a festive cellphone pic with Scuba Claus.

In addition to regularly scheduled animal encounters, stingray feeds and touch pool activities, Scuba Claus Aquarium-goers can also craft animal-themed snowflakes and participate in a cold weather trivia challenge for a chance to win ultimate weekly Aquarium experience prize package valued at $200. At 11am, the animal care team will present holiday- and cold-weather-themed feeding enrichment activities  such as giving fish melting icicle treats to giving birds fruit ornaments.

Children visiting on Scuba Claus appearance days also receive an original holiday mini activity book and a Scuba Claus temporary tattoo (while supplies last).
