Scuba Santa dives into coral reef tank at Cal Academy

SAN FRANCISCO -- "Scuba Santa" explored the depths of the Philippine Coral Reef during his first dive of the holiday season at California Academy of Sciences on Tuesday.

He jumped into a 212,000-gallon tank full of thousands of colorful reef fish, which represent over 100 species, outfitted with an underwater microphone to answer all reef-related questions from visitors.

His plunge kicked off the start of the Academy's Coral Reef Dive featuring Scuba Santa, a special program that happens daily at 11:30 a.m. through Monday, Dec. 25.
