The Deep Aquarium, Hull| A Review.

It’s been about a couple of month since I visited the deep aquarium but I really wanted to mention my visit here on this blog. The reason is it’s worth mentioning.
It was an incredible visit and I will be back in the future.

Leaving on a university trip, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I had not done any research on the centre and was going mainly because I was informed it was the home to two loggerhead sea turtles that had recently came and were on full public show (they are both about 4 foot may I add, it was incredible. They are everything I dreamed they would me and I almost cried).

2.5 million litres of water and 87 tonnes of salt go into the “Endless ocean” tank they are housed in, I was taking back by the size and hadn’t expected such a brilliant home for these creatures, which such an array of wonderful species including Zebra sharks, Green Sawfish, Honeycomb Rip tail rays and White tip reef sharks. You can see these animals getting fed and interacted with by divers from many different viewing points within the facility. Basically it was incredible.

Another brilliant talking point of the aquarium is the ‘Lagoon of light’. It was a stunning exhibit, filled with tropical, exotic fish and even juvenile zebra sharks, But I think the pictures speak more than anything I could say to describe the experience. And I honestly wish I had took better quality images.
So without further ado, here are some images from my visit to ‘The Deep Aquarium”:
