Sea-son's greetings!

Meet Diving Santa at the Seattle Aquarium! The holly jolly diver will read a holiday story to our guests while he’s submerged in our 120,000-gallon Window on Washington Waters habitat.

Nothing says “sea-son’s greetings” like a selfie with Santa. Take a picture with him as he hovers underwater while you stay warm and dry. Volunteers will be standing by to help take a family photo using your devices.

Additional Diving Santa dates and times are below. American Sign Language interpretation will be available during the dive on December 16, 2024.
