Overview

Deep Sea World is located underneath the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, in the quaint village of North Queensferry. Deep Sea World is one of the premier attractions in Scotland, offering fun for the whole family, no matter what their age. Come along and see our spectacular underwater tunnel and come face to face with one of Europe's largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks and even dive with them...If you're feeling brave enough!

Interesting, but very difficult to identify fish, as pictures on the info panels are very small & only show a part of the fish. Excellent display about marine pollution, but no information for children to take away to find out more or become involved. TERRIBLE...More

Poor value for the money..The glass on most of the tanks was dirty so we struggled to see in some.Definitely won't be going back we were less than 45mins and paid over £40 for 3 of us.

The actual 'fishy' part of this is not too bad, the underwater tunnel is good fun, but it would be nice if there was a way to view the sharks and fish from above so that their full size could be appreciated, the staff were...More

Most staff were friendly some not so. Food overpriced and not well cooked. Cafe area needed a good clean and tables not cleared and left. Other than that plenty to see but doubt I'll be back.

Hi, best to look on their website as they have different types of tickets ie family tickets, advanced and flexi tickets etc It may also be worth keeping an eye on Groupon and Itson for reduced tickets. Hope that helps.
