More Details

Go out on an adventure with one of Santa’s best elves: Noel Narwhal. On your quest to find our local dolphins, you will receive a video call from the big guy himself! Santa will assign a mission to Noel Narwhal and all of her guests on the boat and you will have the opportunity to help Noel Narwhal complete the mission and earn a spot on Santa’s nice list this season!

This is a 75 minute interactive Holiday-themed adventure that is soon-to-become a family tradition! After the tour, you can make s’mores in the snow at the marina to help celebrate the completion of Santa’s mission!


Don’t forget to bring your letters to mail to Santa. We have inside connections with his elf-delivery system!
