Recently we took a family trip to The Deep, Hull, East Yorkshire. As the only submarium in the world, it is home to rare species and thousands of water creatures! Regardless of the reason for going – it WILL call to something in you.
People of all ages marvelled at the world we know so little of. There was an overwhelming sense of how huge the underwater world is and how important it is we do our part to look after it. The DEEP is interactive – not just the man-made/deliberate points of contact but the sea creatures themselves interacted… they show-boated! The sting-rae’s and sawfish in particular seemed to deliberately come close where they swam by the huge glass-fronted area in their aquarium where strange creatures on two feet were stood. In the lagoon, one particular fish came right up to the glass and mimicked my 10-year old nephew as he slowly walked up and down the glass opening and closing his mouth…it was no coincidence – this creature was connecting as if to say ‘hi!’.
Well worth a visit and ranked 10/10 by the small people in our party.
