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!

The seal talk was good . The shark feed was ok . Not worth them money! We were round the place in an hour that's with listening to talks. . Wouldn't recommend it

Visited one afternoon. Quite busy with parents and children. Plenty of parking. Different lay out to others that I have been to. Quite expensive entrance. As most of them are. Very exciting for children interesting for adults.

Fantastic afternoon. Beautifully set up aquariums and you can see sharks and fish swimming around and above you when going through the glass tunnel whilst standing on a slow moving floor. Suitable for all ages! You buy an entry ticket and you can go out...More

Had only been to Deep Sea World once before to do a shark dive when I was 16 but hadn't gone round the actual exhibit (the shark dive alone is an experience I would recommend to everyone! 5 stars just for that!) I'm hoping to...More

When I went it was magical and fun seeing water creatures especially walking though a tunnel seeing a shark swimming above you. Definitely a family day out with the kids, well recommended

We very almost didn't visit Deep Sea World, based on the negative reviews here - however, a love of all things aquatic was too much too resist and we're glad we went! From the reviews, we were half expecting something absolutely horrendous, which couldn't be...More

I don't usually write reviews but I was so disheartened by our visit to Deep Sea World I felt compelled to warn others to save their money and go spend it somewhere else. I read reviews before we visited which were quite mixed, I decided...More

Unless you want to see all the great talks that both facilities have to offer the two could be easily accomplished in a day. Deep sea world is open from 10am to 5pm but you want to be there at least one hour before closing... More

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.
