Here are some events going on around Southwest Florida November 23-25.
Scuba Quest - Cape Coral
12 p.m. - 3 p.m.
This is not your average Santa picture. The instructor will teach you the basics of scuba diving and then, you'll dive down to the bottom of the pool and have a seat with Santa for a picture you'll never forget. The experience of scuba diving makes this event awesome and having a digital picture to remember it by is even better. Call (239) 458-1999 to schedule a time to take a picture with Santa.
