Scuba Santa is coming back to the Adventure Aquarium this holiday season, starting Friday, Dec 4, 2015.

The Jolly Old Elf has many talents and one of them happens to be scuba diving. Each day this month, Santa will don his red wetsuit and dive among sharks, stingrays, schools of fish and giant sea turtles in the 760,000 gallon Ocean Realm exhibit.

It’s just one of the attractions that are part of the aquarium’s annual Christmas Celebration, where decorations, holiday trees, lights and even falling snow create a winter wonderland atmosphere.

A life-sized Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer awaits in a winter woodland with his lit up snoot to answer yes or no questions with a shake of the head and pose for photos.

Bumble, the Abominable Snow Monster character from the Rankin/Bass animated television special will also be present to help place a star upon a giant Christmas tree while Santa’s helpers tell the story of Rudolph.

General admission for adults and kids over age 13 is $25.95 and $18.95 for children ages 2 to 12.

Friday, Dec. 4 through Thursday, Dec. 31, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Christmas Day and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on New Year’s Eve) – 1 Riverside Dr., Camden, NJ.
