#8 of 53 in Parks in Fife
At Deep Sea World, learn about life at the bottom of the sea. The aquarium hosts large sand tiger sharks, a stingray, tropical fish, piranhas, and more. Walk through exhibits, including the nursery full of baby sharks, the seal enclosure, and a recreation of the Amazon River and its inhabitants, and join an underwater safari to dive with the sharks and more than 1,000 fish. The aquarium offers dives for both certified divers and novices, so you can get close to the sharks regardless of your diving experience level. Book your tickets online to save on the price of admission and waiting time at the entrance.

  • Decided to visit this place while we stayed in Edinburgh as only 30-minute train journey from the Waverley station. Nice small centre with apparently the longest underwater tunnel, which was great as ...  more »

  • Admission price was £15.00 each. No logical direction in how to go round the venue. Quite interesting I would say for young children possibly. The sharks were good though the conveyor belt was extreme...  more »

  • Lovely day out with the family. Lots to see and longest "conveyor belt" viewing tank we've been on which my 12 month old and e year old both enjoyed. Liked the outside seal viewing. Guy on till also did a little tour which was nice and informative. Food was a real let down, but I'm not taking a star away for that as it's the aquarium I'm rating but better service and a cleaner canteen would be great :)
  • Still a good trip out but looking at bit dated. Seahorses are plentiful now and most displays are well stocked. The octopus was new to me and quite interesting. Overpriced cafe so brought own lunch and set a limit for shop as onlu cuddly toys, magnets and pencils worth buying.
  • Main reason for going, the clear underwater tunnel, you can see sharks and Manta ray. That's it though. The place is a bit shabby and relies upon its chief attraction, the underwater tunnel a little too much. The entrance is poorly signed and the place is cheap in appearance.
  • The place needs a clean up. The cafe is poor and the shop is full of rubbish, no books or postcards. The signage is too high for children to read. The fish are amazing and it has huge potential unfortunately not enough of the expensive entrance fee is used to upgrade and improve the experience.
  • I didn't like this place at all, the tanks were dirty and over populated as a marine fish owner i was appalled at how bad a specialist place like this can have dirtier tanks than myself. Access to the entrance is a little bit confusing in my opinion. The staff were friendly and informative so kudos too them.
