Holiday: Scuba Santa

If you haven’t checked out the jolly, wet-suited Scuba Santa at the Newport Aquarium, you only have until Jan. 3 to do so. Dressed in his Christmas best, Santa talks and waves to kids and adults from inside an aquarium.

If you haven’t checked out the jolly, wet-suited Scuba Santa at the Newport Aquarium, you only have until Jan. 3 to do so. Sure, Santa’s supposed to fly through the sky with eight reindeer, but who can blame this hardworking, hefty dude for taking some R&R by the water (or underneath it). Dressed in his Christmas best, Santa talks and waves to kids and adults from inside an aquarium. It’s a strange and delightful twist on your typical mall Santa that kids are sure to appreciate. Family activities besides staring at the guy include a reindeer roundup, visiting Scuba Santa’s post office, crafting and listening to Santa during a live dive show. $20 adults; $13 children.
