October half-term family fun at The Deep in Hull

by What's On

Magnificent sharks, stingrays, a colony of Gentoo penguins, Loggerhead sea turtles and hundreds of tropical fish are just a few examples of over 3,500 awesome animals that you can see at The Deep Aquarium in Hull

The aquarium is also home to the UK’s only pair of Green sawfish, and it’s these two beautiful creatures that are being celebrated over the October half term.

The myths and legends surrounding one of the world’s most endangered species will be explored.

Take part in the fun-filled activity trail and be prepared to be amazed.

Every day at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm there will be magical interactive presentations for you to enjoy. There will  also be fabulous family activities in the Craft Corner between 11 am and 4 pm.

There will, of course, be plenty of special seasonal ‘saw-cery’ around too!

Don’t forget to catch the daily dive show at 2 pm and the penguin feeds at 11:30 am and 3:30 pm.

Get hands-on in the regular touch pool sessions with lots of amazing animals that are native to the British shores.

Little nippers can also enjoy the interactive magic floor, fossil brushing station and soft play area.

Immerse yourself into the watery world by taking a walk through the viewing tunnel and then finish your visit with a ride in the glass lift through the 10 metre Endless Ocean tank.

If after all that you are feeling peckish or in need of a cup of something hot, you can grab a drink and a spot of lunch in the Castaways café which enjoys fantastic views over the River Humber and Hull’s Old Town.
