Dive into The Deep!

Online with The Deep

Visit  Hull’s award-winning aquarium The Deep, which is home to over 5,000 animals.  

Marvel at amazing marine life including magnificent sharks and rays, the UK’s only pair of Green sawfish, a colony of Gentoo penguins, Loggerhead sea turtles and hundreds of tropical fish.

Journey through prehistoric seas, past tropical lagoons, into the vast open oceans, down to the darkest depths, through the chilly Kingdom of ice and into the future on your voyage of discovery.

Catch the daily dive show at 2pm (locations vary), penguin feeds at 11:30am and 3:30pm, interactive presentations, as well as getting hands on in a touchpool session with some animals native to British shores (half past the hour from 10:30am to 4:30pm), as well as taking a walk through the viewing tunnel and riding in the glass lift through the 10 metre Endless Ocean tank.

Little nippers can also enjoy the interactive magic floor, fossil brushing station and soft play area.

Food & Drink

Castaways Cafe

Situated on the 3rd floor, with great views over the Humber, Castaways Cafe is open from 10am to 5.30pm every day. It serves hot breakfasts (until 11.30am), a range of hot meals and salad (until 3pm), plus snacks, cakes, sandwiches and hot and cold drinks. Children’s meals and special dietary requirements are all catered for. In peak times, a snack bar serving light bites is also available halfway round the attraction.

Picnic areas
Picnic benches are located outside of the visitor attraction and a small picnic place area in the exhibition (next to Cool Seas). We cannot guarantee you will always find a table as this area may be used by school parties. We offer a baby warming station in this area.


All standard tickets include FREE return visits for 12 months with a Day Plus Pass. Simply complete your details at reception and retain your tickets to make use of this offer. Full terms and conditions can be found on The Deep’s website.
