NORWALK, Conn. -- A holiday highlight at the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is when Santa Claus in scuba gear swims with sharks.

The swim will be twice each day Saturday and Sunday and then most Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays in December.

The diving Santa will enter the aquarium’s 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, a tiger and lemon shark tank.

The special event is to demonstrate that sharks are not "bloodthirsty killers of myth," said a news release.

The dives Sunday are at 12:15 and 2:15 p.m. and will be a chance for visitors to talk with the diving Santa.

There will be photo opportunities when Santa is in the tank.

In addition, kids can meet "dry" Santa in the Toy-Boat Shop on weekends from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 10-11 and 17-18.
