Camden, NJ- Create a new holiday family tradition by taking part in the Philadelphia Region’s most unique holiday experience: Adventure Aquarium’s Christmas Celebration, where the sea literally comes to life with the magic of the holidays!


Beginning Friday, November 25, 2011 and continuing through January 1, 2012, Adventure Aquarium on the Camden, NJ Waterfront will be transformed into a holiday wonderland under the sea, featuring larger-than-life decorations, twinkling lights, glowing trees, gently falling snow and of course, appearances from the Aquarium’s beloved Scuba Santa (and his elf helpers!), who will delight children all ages as he dives the 760,000-gallon Ocean Realm exhibit among rare sharks, gigantic sea turtles, hundreds of schooling fish, massive stingrays and more.


Guests of Adventure Aquarium’s Christmas Celebration can also meet and take photos with a life-sized, interactive Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and his lovable friend, “Bumble,” The Abominable Snow Monster, who will place the star atop Adventure Aquarium’s massive Christmas tree.


Best of all…this year, Adventure Aquarium is featuring more Scuba Santa than EVER! See Scuba Santa dive among some of ocean’s coolest creatures before coming up to meet and take photos with children and families on the “dry” side.
