Christmas Celebration

Scuba Santa returns! One of the region’s most unique holiday traditions returns to Adventure Aquarium on the Camden Waterfront for its eighth year on December 3 through December 30. Christmas Celebration wouldn’t be complete without an appearance by the beloved Scuba Santa. Children of all ages can see Scuba Santa swim alongside magnificent sharks, incredible sea turtles and graceful stingrays in the Aquarium’s 760,000-gallon Ocean Realm exhibit.

All activities included with Aquarium admission.
