There’s an ocean of ways to celebrate the “sea”son at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Visitors can watch Santa Diver swim with sharks, look for holiday décor underwater with the fishes, witness snowfall, and go shopping all at the Aquarium of the Pacific during its holiday celebration from December 3 to 23. The Aquarium will have photo opportunities with Santa and a snow play area during Aquarium Holidays on weekends through December 18.

                        Throughout the celebration, you can see a display of gingerbread houses and holiday themed art projects created by Aquarium staff, a nearly three-story-tall holiday tree, and a sign with various holiday greetings in the Great Hall. While viewing the animals, look for seasonal décor in and around the Aquarium’s habitats from Shark Lagoon with its stockings for the sharks and rays to fish swimming by underwater holiday decorations.
