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!

4 hours travel for an hour in and out but good to support it Tunnel the best bit. Probably due a facelift but funding it must be pricy . Grandson enjoyed it that’s main thing

I visited today with my friend and daughter. Very expensive for the experience given. We had arrived to find the place very run down and dreary. Very dingy and dark. As we got to the tunnel we became very disappointed. There aren't many colourful fish....More

Last time I came was about 10 years ago. Not much seems to have changed. The tunnel is the best part however it could do with a few more animals and even some better shows. I would return but not for a while.

Good attraction but the price is a bit expensive. The location is amazing under the Forth Rail Bridge. The tunnel with the sharks was amazing. I did the tunnel 3 time 👍👍👍

The people working here are kind and informative but the place is small, over-priced and dilapidated. The exhibits are old and many were empty. The seal feeding is informative but the area is small and a little sad. The only impressive thing is the moving...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.
