Aquarium Happenings


Shark-Diving Santa

Sponsored by People's United Bank

Santa Claus will join our dive team in December to help demonstrate that sharks aren’t the blood-thirsty killers of myth. 

Several times each week through the holiday season (workload permitting), Santa will strap on his custom scuba outfit and enter our 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, which is home to 7- and 8-foot sand tiger and lemon sharks.  He’ll swim up to the exhibit window and pose with children, so bring your camera for a unique holiday photo. 

All the dives are free with Aquarium admission.
