Scuba Claus & The Seas’N of Play

Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays
November 24 – December 23, 10am – 5pm*
& Christmas Eve, 10am – 2pm*
(Scuba Claus visits noon – 1:30pm)

Warm holiday wishes and brightly colored fishes come together during Scuba Claus & the Seas’N of Play presented by WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone. Guests can see Scuba Claus dive in 230,000 gallons of water (12 – 1:30pm) and ask him questions while he visits a porcupine pufferfish, green moray eel, goliath grouper, sharks and other aquatic friends on his “nice” list. Equipped with a special full face mask, Scuba Claus is able to breathe underwater while communicating to guests outside the shark exhibit.

Activity stations throughout the Aquarium also illustrate how hula hoops, fish-cicles and other toys and treats help to keep the Aquarium’s residents active and engaged. The Aquarium regularly provides enrichment while promoting natural behaviors for our animals. Stimulation and environmental enhancements can range from hiding carrot slices for the tortoises to find to adding bubbles for curious stingrays to explore. During The Seas’n of Play guests are invited to try parallel sensory activities such as practicing their aim like an archerfish spurting a stream of water at a moving target.
