Situated just a 5 minute walk from Hull Marina and a short stroll to the City Centre, The Deep is in the perfect location for visitors to enjoy the City of Hull and all it has to offer for a fabulous day out for all.


Let us take you on a journey of the seas - travel through the story of the world's oceans from warm tropical lagoons to the icy cold Antarctic seas. Enjoy the fun and educational interactive and audio-visual presentations which make it a fun filled family day out for all ages.

Take a walk through our underwater tunnel to admire the stunning marine life swimming right above you, before riding in our glass lift through the 10m Endless Oceans exhibit for some under the sea vibes. Keep your eyes peeled for a sneak peek behind the scenes! 

There are a host of activities happening at The Deep every single day to enhance your enjoyment and knowledge of our residents. These include:

• Touch pool sessions: get hands on with inhabitants of our local shores at Dylan’s Discovery Corner

• Daily dive presentations: Watch the divers feed the majestic sharks, rays and sawfish in Endless Oceans (Feed dives are Monday, Wednesday & Friday, cleaning/maintenance dives are Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday), and Amazon Flooded Forest on Sundays at 2pm.

• Penguin feeds twice daily: Here you can also learn about the threats to their habitat, issues surrounding climate change and ocean acidification as well as animal biology and food chains.

The Deep is an environmental and conservation charity, not for profit and is dedicated to increasing the knowledge and understanding of the world's oceans through its participation in vital research and conservation schemes around the world.
