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!

We visited Deep Sea World several years ago with our children then probably about 12 and 9. I remember thinking then that it was very expensive for not a lot but somehow we ended up going again yesterday with our now 19 year old daughter....More

Revisited after a long absence. Certainly no improvements to be seen. Admission expensive. The underwater tunnel seemed mucky on the inside, the commentary soundtrack was of appalling sound quality. Tanks at entrance level seemed clean but small, and not that many to keep you occupied...More

Recently visited deep sea world and left a bit disappointed. There were three of us myself, my wife and my son (2 1/2 year old). The weather and the drive getting there was awful so that may have offset my opinion. We arrived after lunchtime...More

This place is great for a day's outing from Edinburgh. It is just a short train ride across the Firth of Forth away. We spent several hours there, attending the shark feeding, seal feeding and meet-and-greet with Jack, the bearded dragon. It was great fun....More

A trip to Deep Sea World is well worth the visit especially if visiting Edinburgh. We went as they offer a Shark Diving Experiance which we pre-booked from our 11 year old Son. The experiance included admission for the diver and a parent/ gardian and...More

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

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.
