Santa goes diving

Among the host of events lined up to delight visitors over the festive period, one of the most memorable is undoubtedly Santa goes diving at Nausicaá.
Straight from the North Pole, Santa Claus himself will be making the trip to the aquarium for some underwater adventures. An overview of the dates of these dives is given below:

  • On Wednesdays the 6th, 13th and 20th of December at 2 PM

Santa Claus, dressed in his special diving suit, will be diving into the depths of Europe’s largest aquarium to rub shoulders with sharks, turtles, rays and all the other species that live in the giant tank. This unexpected opportunity to meet Santa Claus from the North Pole is sure to delight the whole family, adding a touch of enchantment to your visit to Nausicaá.

Santa’s diving events at Nausicaà are sure to provide lasting memories for all those lucky enough to be there.

Christmas market unlike any other


On the 16th and 17th of December from 10 am to 6 pm, Nausicaá will be transformed into a winter wonderland with the inauguration of an eco-responsible Christmas market.

This Christmas market, which will feature around fifteen chalets, will occupy the forecourt of the aquarium.
The chalets will be hosting an exquisite selection of artisanal products committed to sustainable seas, original gift ideas and festive delights.

But there’s more! The second edition of the Nausicaá Christmas market has a few new surprises in store for you this year: a chance to meet Santa Claus, a concert by the “Christmas Boogie Men” trio of musicians, entertainment and other surprises all await you in an authentic Christmas atmosphere!

Give your loved ones a treat while helping to support local craftspeople and preserve our seas.


A chance to meet Santa Claus

On the 16th and 17th of December, Nausicaá has something else in store for you.

You’ll have the chance to meet the real Santa Claus.

Although he’s very busy at the moment, Santa Claus will be visiting our Aquarium in person, and will be on hand to answer any questions from young and old alike.
It’s a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with Santa and have your photo taken with him.

An unforgettable experience for all the family that will rekindle the Christmas spirit in you.
