Celebrate the holiday season at The Maritime Aquarium with these seasonal offerings!
Santa Claus is joining The Maritime Aquarium’s dive team in December to help demonstrate that sharks aren’t the blood-thirsty killers of myth; they’re not naughty, they’re nice!
Several times each week through the holiday season (workload permitting), Santa is strapping on his custom scuba outfit and entering the Aquarium’s 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, which is home to 8- and 9-foot sharks.
He regularly swims up to the exhibit window and poses with children, so bring your camera for a unique holiday photo.
Santa is Expected to Dive with Our Sharks on:
November 29: 12:15, 1:15 & 2:15 p.m.
November 30 through December 22: Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 12:15, 1:15 & 2:15 p.m.
December 26 through 30: daily at 12:15, 1:15 & 2:15 p.m.
"Shark-Diving Santa" is free with Aquarium admission. Dates & times are subject to change. Click here to check our calendar before your visit.
No matter the weather outside, we are guaranteeing a snowy forecast inside every day this holiday season, thanks to a special snow machine that will produce a fun flurry on the hour every day.
From November 29 through December 31, “Flurry Zone! An Indoor Snow Experience” will produce a squall every hour on the hour, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., from the ceiling of Newman’s Own Hall. Each snowfall lasts for 5 minutes but, through unique technology, it evaporates as it hits the floor, so no shoveling will be required.
“Flurry Zone!” is free with Aquarium admission.
