This May half term have a turtle’y brilliant time at The Deep. They’ve lined up a variety of activities to keep little flippers flapping like daily dive shows, presentations and a ‘Turtle Terrors’ trail. Just don’t miss the face painting station where kids can be done up as amazing deep sea beastie! Visit from the 27th of May to the 4th of June.
The Deep is just as spectacular as it sounds with nearly 5,000 animals including Europe’s only pair of green sawfish! Your journey will take you from tropical lagoons to chilliest of northern climes with a unique blend of interactive stations and and conservation.
Visitors will love the newly refurbished Lagoon of Light exhibit which features mangrove trees and multicoloured corals, as well as being home to hundreds of tropical fish - some of which are brand new! Catch some of the daily highlights including touch pool sessions where you can get hands-on with species native to the UK, as well as twice daily penguin feeding. Then take a walk through the underwater viewing tunnel before riding the famous glass lift through the 10m Endless Ocean exhibit.
After all that you may need a refuel at the Castaways Café. However before you do, make sure you say hello to the brand new residents, Sensa and Mabouche! This lovable pair of Loggerhead sea turtles arrived early in 2017 and can be found exploring their new home.
