Deep Sea World is located underneath the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, in the quaint village of North Queensferry.

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!

Very disappointed. We travelled from dundee to go here. £50.00 for 2 adults and 2 children. We were around the whole place in 30 mins. Very very dated, some of the tanks didn't even have anything in them. We could go to dobbies garden centre...More

We went during the Easter holidays, but went in the afternoon around 3pm so I suppose most of the mad rush was over by then as it wasn't too crowded. We paid £45.50 for a family ticket. It's basically one hall of various tanks, some...More

This was a complete waste of money. The place was absolutely filthy and I genuinely question the wellbeing of some of the animals here! The seals were kept in a tiny, very unclean area, and looked miserable! Many "attractions" closed, not working or simply empty....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.
