River dwellers and sea creatures peacefully coexist at the Newport Aquarium.  You can experience touch pools here and meet underwater creatures. Some of the Aquarium’s most popular attractions include

  • Ring Of Fire: World of the Octopus
  • Shark Bridge
  • Gator Alley
  • Penguin Palooza
  • Surrounded by Sharks

This is the 21st year of the Cincinnati tradition of Scuba Santa.  There’s holiday lights and music throughout the Aquarium as Scuba Santa swims in the 385,000 gallon Surrounded by Sharks tank.  You can meet Scuba Santa and tell him your holiday wishes. You can also visit Scuba Santa’s island retreat in Stingray Hideaway.
