Santa Claus himself will be making several appearances this holiday season at the South Carolina Aquarium. Word on the streets is that he will be scuba diving and interacting with sharks, turtles, and other ocean friends.

Santa's performances will thrill Christmas lovers through December 23, and the half-hour shows commence at 3 p.m. daily.
