Santa Claus scuba dives at the Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire
At the Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, a fearless Santa Claus plunges into the shark-infested waters to deliver presents to the team of divers who work in a 3.8 million litre display tank alongside three-metre-long sand tiger sharks, lemon sharks, giant stingrays and more than 1,500 other tropical fish.

The scuba diving Santa Claus will also be delivering delectable treats to the tank’s full time residents…Even fish appreciate a Christmas gift every now and then!
Paul Renolds from the Blue Planet Aquarium said, “Three metres underwater may not be the first place you’d expect to come face to face with Santa Claus. It just goes to show there really isn’t anywhere Santa can’t deliver presents – and it’s certainly a lot warmer than the North Pole!
“Judging from the reaction we’ve already had from our team members we’re expecting our scuba diving Santa to make a real splash with visitors of all ages.
“One of the unexpected bonuses is that the sharks and other fish are extremely curious and tend to follow him around the display which makes for some spectacularly close encounters for Santa.”
Santa Claus will be scuba diving every weekend, beginning this Saturday, during the aquarium’s regular dive shows, and will be diving daily from December 19th right up until Christmas Eve.
