Attraction Information

Take a peek into life deep underwater at Deep Sea World - Scotland's national aquarium. Located beneath the world-famous Forth Rail Bridge, it’s home to over 2,000 creatures - ranging from seahorses and stingrays, to seals and sharks.

This award-winning aquarium will take you and your little explorers on a journey of discovery through the planet's rivers, lakes and oceans. You’ll get to see all sorts of wonderful and bizarre marine inhabitants - from mudskippers and piranhas to lesser octopus and clownfish, and explore the underwater world with a range of seasonal events. Don't miss the outdoor Seal Harbour, home to a resident family of adorable common seals!

See one of Europe's largest collections of sharks at the incredible 4.5 million litre Underwater Safari - the longest underwater tunnel in the UK. Come face to face with 3-metre-long sand tiger sharks, as well as hundreds of other fascinating creatures like rays, wrasse and mackerel. Be sure to catch the daily dive and feeding shows and watch the divers as they feed the sharks.
