The Deep details...

Put The Deep in East Yorkshire at the top of your list of places to go with the kids. Home to almost 3,500 fish including magnificent sharks, the UK’s only pair of Green sawfish and many more. Not forgetting an array of bugs, snakes and colony of Gentoo penguins!

Journey through the dramatic story of the world’s oceans – from tropical lagoons to the chillier northern climes. Enjoy a unique blend of aquaria mixed with interactive stations and information about the work that is carried out by The Deep as an education and conservation charity.

Catch some of the amazing daily highlights around the attraction – discover small creatures native to UK shores in a touchpool session, see the penguins having a snack in one of the twice-daily hand feeding sessions, and watch the divers feed their animals or check their environment is clean and safe during the dive show at 2pm.

Finish your visit by taking a walk through the underwater viewing tunnel, before riding in the famous glass lift through the 10 metre Endless Ocean exhibit.

Make sure to stop and admire the fabulous open-topped Lagoon of Light exhibit; showcasing life on the reef it features large mangrove trees, amazing corals, small sharks, stingrays and hundreds of tropical fish! You can also gain a fish eye’s view in our bubble heads. Don’t forget to meet Sensa and Mabouche, the Loggerhead sea turtles in Endless Oceans.
