Does Santa Scuba Dive? Yes He Does! Find Out Where…

This week’s Go Weekend Pick is going to send you on trip to see Santa in a setting you don’t normally find him in.  The Newport Aquarium in Newport Kentucky, just across the bridge from Cincinnati, Ohio is where you will find him making his rounds this weekend, or I should say “swimming his rounds”!

Go Weekend Pick


The Newport Aquarium’s website declares that their Scuba Santa has been called one of the most unusual holiday experiences in America.  Come and discover what it’s all about.  They say your whole family will marvel at Santa’s magical dive show where Santa, his elf and even some friendly fish talk to you from beneath the sea.  Plus, he’ll even read a special underwater version of the celebrated ‘Twas the Night before Christmas from his Magic Story Book.  Newport Aquarium invites you and your family to experience the joy of their annual family holiday tradition and see what the whole country’s been talking about! For more information and Santa’s complete schedule, click here.

The following family fun activities are Free with admission:

  • Play the Reindeer Roundup game and help Scuba Santa find his missing reindeer
  • Visit Scuba Santa’s Post Office and write a letter
  • Hear Scuba Santa talk from beneath the sea during magical underwater dive shows

In addition to seeing Santa, you can have a penguin encounter!  This 20 minute experience will allow you to see Black-footed penguins up close and personal.  You will be able to speak with an animal experience specialist who handles the adorable birds, even take pictures and possibly touch one! ….  There is an additional cost for this activity, but well worth the additional $25.00.  For tickets and more information on this fun filled activity, click here.

The Barker, Beck, Collins and Kronauge Agency family hope you have a very merry and safe weekend!
