Aquarium of the Pacific

The animals at the Aquarium of the Pacific get their holiday treats early from Mr. Claus!  Santa Diver delivers an ocean of gifts to the Aquarium of the Pacific for its penguins, sea otters, lorikeets, fish, and more.

Note Santa Diver took the season off in 2020.

Holiday Treats for the Animals festival kicks off Aquarium Holidays, which runs through December 23, featuring festive décor, a display of gingerbread houses, daily Penguin Walks, holiday music and shopping, “snowfall” in the Great Hall, a special holiday menu in Café Scuba, and daily appearances by Aquarium characters in their holiday outfits.

On weekends through December 23, beginning with Holiday Treats for the Animals festival, the Aquarium has a snow play area, underwater shows with Santa Diver, children’s crafts, photo opportunities with Santa, and Hanukkah storytelling with opportunities to play dreidel.
