“Too expensive”
Review of Deep Sea World

Deep Sea World

Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

Have been here a few times & found it expensive for what it is & not all that impressive haven’t been in a few years & went to book tickets for next week given the rainy easter holiday weather...my eldest daughter is very interested in oceans & sea creatures after a recent school project & my youngest loves mermaids so seemed great but now my younger kids are older i need to pay for them too...one adult & 3 kids its £39 (taking 3 kids anywhere is generally expensive) thats with the 20% discount online if i book a specific day - from memory we only stayed an hr max so cant justify the cost & i think they need to look at pricing as lots of reviews saying the same thing

We drove 2 hours to get to this place for our sons Birthday. It was a mess You pay over £50 for a family of 4 to get in then have to pay for a book with activities in it for your children for £2.99 then pay the 1.99 for a poundland pen (You woul get a pack of 20 there) We spent 30 minutes in deep sea world. 10 looking around another 10 deciding if we should go back through the underground tunnel and the last 10 looking in the cafe at the very overpriced £10 burgers and then deciding to leave.

We visited on a wet April Tuesday with our two year old daughter and had a lovely time. Whilst the venue is beginning to show its age our daughter had a great time, the shark tunnel and seal feeding were particular highlights for both her and us.
There are a number of tanks and a great selection of fish, sealife and frogs.

Highly recommended for a wet day!

Visited here on Easter weekend. It is expensive to get in.we went many yrs ago it really hasn't changed much. The place was really busy. It's dark in most areas. The enclourse for the seals was very poor and dirty. We were in and out in about 40 mins. Its not that big inside. Wouldnt go back. Believe you can get 20 percent of online if booked in advance

The car park made the first poor impression - very small spaces made it awkward to get out of the car. The next poor impression was the cafe - poor choice of unimaginative food, tables not cleaned.

The fishy part of the attraction is OK at best. The presentation is rather dated, there’s not really a lot to see, but the biggest drawback is the price. It simply isn’t worth the entrance fee
