Starting on Saturday, 21st December, the Aquarium will be twinkling with lights from the Ocean, with visitors given the chance to take part in a special trail and to discover what it really feels like to be thousands of metres below the surface by stepping inside its magical bioluminescence cave. All correctly filled trail sheets will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a secret Christmas prize.
Not only that, but there will also be a chance to see Santa taking the plunge into in the Aquarium’s Eddystone exhibit during daily dive shows. Children will be invited to write letters to him at the North Pole and post their Christmas wish lists into a special mailbox, the contents of which will be delivered directly to Santa so that he knows what to fill their stockings with this year.
With daily talks, feed, shows, plus over 4,000 animals waiting to meet you, it’s a great place to spend a day out with friends or family this Christmas, come rain or shine (or even snow!)
Whilst you’re visiting, why not pop into the NMA’s Ocean Gift Shop and browse for some unique Christmas gifts? With a range of trinkets, toys, stationery and more to choose from, as well as a hugely popular range of eco-products that are just perfect for those who Think Ocean, it’s a great place to find a special gift for all of those ‘special someones’ in your life.
Please be aware the National Marine Aquarium is closed on the 25th and 26th December
