The Deep @ Hull

Deep 2

The Deep is the world’s only submarium and is one of the most dramatic aquariums in the world.

The Deep is home to 12 different species of shark and more than 3,500 fish. The Deep is also a centre for marine research, and a team of marine biologists look after all of the animals as well as carrying out vital research into the marine environment.

The main attraction is a ten metre deep pool containing 2.5 million litres of water, each afternoon a show dive is performed where the dive team feeds the sharks and rays by hand. The Deep also contains Europe’s deepest viewing tunnel and a spectacular glass lift ride through the 10m tank.
