10am to 6pm (excludes Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when The Deep is closed) Please note that last entry to the exhibition is 5pm.
“ The Deep is excellent, probably the best thing in Hull! I've been three times in 5 months (only pay once per year) and there's always something new. The staff know so much and are happy to chat to you and talk about the fish. Amazing value for money. ”

Love Your Aquarium this May half term
This May half term (25th May to 2nd June), The Deep will be supporting the Love Your Zoo and Aquarium campaign alongside hundreds of BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) venues and telling you the top 10 reasons why you should love us.
Visit The Deep and see the wonderful marine life on offer at Hull's award winning aquarium, which is home to over 6,500 fish, insects, reptiles and amphibians including spectacular sharks and rays. Alongside a stunning array of animals, you can also enjoy interactives and audio-visual presentations which together tell the dramatic story of the world's oceans.
Enjoy daily highlights including dive presentations and animal feedings, discovery corner sessions where you can get up close with some of our animals, our sea themed soft play area and the chance to touch our freezing ice walls in the Kingdom of Ice.
Don't miss your chance to take a ride in our famous glass life through the 10m tank and walk through our superb viewing tunnel.
You can also learn about our vital conservation work across the globe starting first with our five year project to protect endangered manta rays in the Red Sea. Work to safeguard this species began when a team of experts visited Sudan in 2012 to tag and monitor these beautiful animals. The largest animal our team encountered had a whopping 3.6 metre wingspan and you can see a real size graphic of the ray in the attraction.
Take part in family workshops where you get the chance to make your own manta ray, follow our manta trail as well as badge making and 'colour your own aquarium' sheets for younger children at the Explorers' Den.
And don't forgot, you pay for one day's entry and get 360 FOR FREE* with our Day Plus Pass.

“I absolutely loved visiting The Deep. My partner and I took his baby nephew and although he was only 1 years old you could tell he really enjoyed looking at all the fish. My favourite part was the lift, which goes through the tank so you get all the sharks’ etc swimming around you- amazing. Definitely worth the money and it is great they do student discount.”Report
