Scuba Santa dives in San Francisco aquarium

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – It's a busy time for Santa Claus, but he's making time to scuba dive and feed the fish in San Francisco.

The California Academy of Sciences launched its holiday festivities Thursday by having a diver dressed as Santa Claus submerge into a coral reef exhibit while dozens of children watched from behind the glass.

The show known as "Scuba Santa" runs daily through Christmas Day. It takes place during the morning feed at the Philippine Coral Reef tank at the San Francisco museum.

Volunteer diver George Bell donned his Santa suit, from hat to coal black boots, and scuba gear for a recent feed and fielded visitors' questions from inside the tank.

The academy's Philippine Coral Reef tank has thousands of reef fish representing about 100 species.

Those at home can watch Santa's appearance online by webcam.
