Schedule a Scuba Claus Merry Meet & Greet at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium

Dive into holiday fun with Scuba Claus at Greater Cleveland Aquarium!  Talk to the magical man in red while he’s underwater with sharks, stingrays, eels and angelfish on his “nice list.”  Ask diving questions or share what you ho-ho-hope to see under your tree during Scuba Claus Merry Meet & Greet Days, Wed.–Fri., December 14–16, 5– 7:30 pm, or Saturday & Sun., December 17 & 18, 8:30–10 am. 

“Guests spend time exploring our fresh and saltwater galleries before ending their visit in the company of Scuba Claus,” says Stephanie White, general manager. 

All Scuba Claus Merry Meet & Greets include full Aquarium access, a seasonal I-Spy activity, an “I Saw Scuba Claus” pin, the unique opportunity to share “fish-mas” wishes with a Christmas icon and a digital photo of the memorable experience. 

“If you have a family member who’s nervous about visiting St. Nick, you might want to try meeting Scuba Claus,” says White, noting that although the interaction is live and in real time, the novelty of the situation and the significant wall of acrylic between the scuba-certified old pro and guests can change the dynamic and put young fans at ease. 

Scuba Claus Merry Meet & Greets are limited capacity and only available with advance purchase. Tickets are $24.95 for guests ages 13+, $18.95 for children ages 2-12. Adult and child annual passholders ages 2+ can reserve tickets for $5 each.  Admission is always free for children younger than 2.
