Shark-Diving Santa at The Maritime Aquarium of Norwalk

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk

Santa Claus joins The Maritime Aquarium’s dive team to demonstrate that sharks aren’t the blood-thirsty killers of myth. He'll strap on scuba gear and enter the Aquarium’s 110,000-gallon Ocean Beyond the Sound exhibit as part of the regular program that lets Aquarium guests see and talk with volunteer divers swimming in the exhibit. Purpose of the dives is to correct common misperceptions about sharks, as the divers demonstrate how sharks do not see humans as prey.

Santa will swim over to the exhibit window to pose for pictures so be sure to bring a camera.

Shark-Diving Santa is at the Aquarium now through January 2, 2022
