The Deep is an education and conservation charity with a mission ‘to create a deeper understanding of the world’s oceans and inspire positive changes for its survival’. An iconic building located in Hull, at the confluence of the Humber Estuary and the River Hull, The Deep celebrates its 20th Anniversary in 2022. Nearly 9 million visitors have been welcomed to the aquarium during this time, who have all made connections with its aquatic life and habitats.
Through accessible and sustainable tourism, visitors enjoy an exhibition journey through prehistoric seas, past tropical lagoons, into the vast open oceans, down to the darkest depths, through the chilly Kingdom of Ice and beyond. The Deep is home to spectacular animals including sharks and stingrays, Loggerhead sea turtles and a colony of Gentoo penguins.
