Scuba Claus is at Wonders of Wildlife

Scuba Claus

Storytime With Scuba Claus

Feeling extra Santa-mental this season?

Join us for our annual holiday program featuring an underwater reading of “Twas the Night Before Fishmas” with SCUBA Claus, Mrs. Claus and a host of other characters. Throughout the programming, we’ll provide seasonal sips and snacks—including hot chocolate, apple cider and freshly baked cookies. Once you’ve marveled over the undersea magic, snap an “elfie” with our characters before you leave!
