Scuba Santa

Scuba Santa at Newport Aquarium in Kentucky is a holiday tradition in the Cincinnati area. The all-new Water Wonderland with Scuba Santa is a truly wondrous experience where families connect and interact with the magic of an undersea holiday celebration.

Newport Aquarium in Kentucky, the number one aquarium in the country according to USA Today’s 10Best.com, showcases thousands of animals from around the world in a million gallons of water. In December, the aquarium turns into a winter wonderland where families are treated to seeing Scuba Santa. Scuba Santa swims hourly inside the shark tank with his elves for kids of all ages to view and enjoy the unique experience.

While at the aquarium patrons can also check out the Albino Alligators, “Snowflake” and “Snowball” who returned to Newport in 2014 and have permanent residency. They are about six feet long and weigh between 65-85 pounds. There are less than 100 albino alligators known in the world today and this is due to poor blending in with their natural environment and their sensitivity to UV rays.

Newport Aquarium is a leader in wildlife conservation with many community outreach programs. Mobile Shark Cart is a mobile cart that is used as an education/touch pool that is taken to schools, events, etc. and is used to bring awareness to shark protection and ocean conservation. WAVE Program is a program that promotes the importance of ocean conservation, leadership, and STEM to young children through young adults. Individuals can go behind the scenes with a staff member and gets to see how the aquarium works and learn about the conservation programs and species at the aquarium.

Scuba Santa will be at the aquarium through December 31st so there is still plenty of time to visit this holiday season.
