On Nov. 28 & 29, and then on select dates in December, Santa Claus and sometimes Mrs. Claus join The Maritime Aquarium’s dive team demonstrating that sharks aren’t the blood-thirsty killers of myth.
Santa straps on scuba gear and enters the Aquarium’s 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, home to 7-foot sand tiger and lemon sharks.
It’s all part of the regular dive program, where Aquarium visitors can see – and talk with – divers swimming in the exhibit on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 12:15 & 2:15 p.m.
Be sure to bring your camera and get a photo of your kids posing with our "Shark-Diving Santa" at the exhibit window for a most unique holiday memory.
