Santa Claus will join The Maritime Aquarium’s dive team in December to help demonstrate that sharks aren’t the blood-thirsty killers of myth. Several times each week through the holiday season (workload permitting), Santa will strap on his custom scuba outfit and enter the Aquarium’s 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, which is home to 7- and 8-foot sharks. He’ll swim up to the exhibit window and pose with children, so bring your camera for a unique holiday photo. Check the Aquarium’s website to confirm the dates when Santa can pull himself away from the North Pole and exchange his snow boots for swim fins. The Santa dives are part of a regular Aquarium program where guests can see and talk with volunteer divers swimming in the exhibit. The purpose of the dives is to correct common misperceptions about sharks, as the divers demonstrate how sharks do not see humans as prey.
