Traditional Santa Photos at Seaport Village

The holiday season is upon us so naturally it’s time to take your photo with Santa Claus.  What better place to get that done than beautiful Seaport Village

Starting November 15th, Santa will be at our East Plaza Gazebo ready to take lovely holiday photos with you.  Photos taken with Santa are printed on site and ready in minutes.  Groups, pets and kids of all ages are welcome.  Of course there will be candy cane treats and a chance to let Santa know what you would like to find under your tree with every sitting.   

Something fun you can do at Seaport Village specifically is customize a mug at The Mugger (located in the West Plaza Fountain area) with your Santa pic.  I bet you Grandma would love that!

 I suggest taking your photos early in the season before it gets hectic.  We all know how that is. 

Hurry down to Seaport Village and get your holidays started.  And say hi to Santa from me!

2014 Surfin’ Santa Arrival Details

It’s that time of the year again and Santa Claus is coming to Seaport Village in true Southern California fashion- in his board shorts and flip flops. Join us on Nov. 29th for Surfin’ Santa’s arrival via watercraft at 1pm!  What type of a watercraft will Santa arrive on this year?  You’ll just have to wait and see.

Surfin’ Santa will arrive on the water next to Pier Café where he will disembark for a parade down the boardwalk.  The parade will commence at his 6 foot wave where he will pose for photos until 5 pm.  The day is packed with activities like, Eco Friendly Ornament Making with Birch Aquarium at Scripps, photos with Santa, toy soldier magic show, face painting, sand box fun, live holiday band performance, and more!

You can also get your holiday shopping done early at the 60+ stores featured at Seaport Village.  With shops featuring items like candles, beach attire, and mugs, you’re sure to find something for everyone in your family.  Plus it’s Small Business Saturday (which the shops at Seaport Village are), so win-win.


Make sure to arrive early and don’t miss Santa’s arrival on the pier!  See you all then.
