NORWALK, Conn. -- Santa Claus is planning several visits to The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk this month to keep the holiday spirit alive.
Santa Claus will visit the aquarium from 10 a.m .to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 14 to pose for photos and visit with children. Santa Claus also will join The Maritime Aquarium’s dive team and swim with sharks. Santa will strap on scuba gear and enter the aquarium’s 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, which is home to 7-foot sand tiger and lemon sharks.
The “Scuba Santa” programs are scheduled for Thursdays in December. The visits will be part of the Aquarium’s regular dive-team program, which lets visitors see – and talk with – divers swimming among the sharks.
