Deep Sea World is set in North Queensferry, Fife and if you love exploring the underwater world then is a great family day out.
Deep sea world is Scotland’s national aquarium and has one of Europe’s biggest collections of sharks. The sharks all live in the world’s longest underwater tunnel and one of the largest underwater safaris in the UK, if nothing else this is definitely worth seeing.
This massive tunnel holds a million gallons of sea water and is over 112m long. Walking through the tunnel you will not only see the huge amount of sharks that creep through the waters but seals and seahorses. If you look carefully you will notice the camouflaged stingrays and sand sharks that glide along the bottom along with hundreds of other creatures.
With over 40 exhibits there is so much to see and if you are brave enough experience diving with the sharks.
If you have ever wondered what it is like to dive with sharks then here is your chance. Deep Sea World offers the chance to experience diving into the Underwater Safari and swim up close with the huge Sand Tiger sharks, conger eels, thornback rays, stingrays.
If you have not dived before then this is not a problem, a qualified diver will be with you all the way. Even children aged 8 -15 can experience this although this is limited from March to November.
There is a restaurant situated under the Fourth Rail Bridge where you can enjoy both hot and cold meals and hot and cold snacks.
Deep Sea World is open weekdays 10-5 and weekends 10-6.
