Scubaluminations features underwater reindeer

It’s that time again folks! Scubaluminations, now in its fourth year, will be bringing joy to children and pets everywhere on Thursday, 20 December at Rackam’s Waterfront. Somehow it just makes sense to bring the sea and scuba into the mix, what with diving being one of the premier industries in the Cayman Islands ‘n’ all. 

The event begins at 6.30pm with traditional carol singing down in C-Blu. Carols under the stars are the perfect way to kick the evening off. This is followed by Santa and his elves arriving on his water sleigh [boat] with his underwater reindeer [divers with flashlights and glowsticks] lighting the way to the shore. Santa then is led to C-Blu by his elves and Rudolph to hear Christmas wishes from young and old. Children spend time with Jolly Old St. Nick, no doubt listing the number of items they would like to find under the tree on Christmas morning. The night closes with an encore of the carol singing so everyone is humming a tune all the way home. 

Scubaluminations is held to raise Christmas donations for the Cayman Islands Humane Society and although entry is free, guests are asked to bring food, treats and toys for the animals, as well as cleaning supplies such as bleach, trash bags and tumble drier sheets.  

Of course, the perfect Christmas gift this year would be to consider adopting an animal, but remember that when you adopt a pet it’s for life, not just for Christmas. Monetary donations are also welcome. 

This is fast becoming one of the most popular events on the Christmas calendar, so mark yours and make sure you get down to Rackam’s for Scubaluminations!
