The first Antarctic penguin display in the North of England is set to open at The Deep in Hull on Monday 3rd March.
The display, located in The Deep's Kingdom of Ice has been named 'The Penguins of Grytviken' and will be home to 10 Gentoo penguins; six adults and four juveniles*, which are joining us from Moody Gardens in Texas.
These VIP residents..... that's Very Important Penguins will help explain to visitors about the threats to their habitat, issues surrounding climate change and ocean acidification as well as exploring food chains and animal biology.
This £750,000 exhibit will give families fantastic views of the penguins across three floors, both swimming underwater, on land in their nesting and beach area and on their very own outdoor balcony. Even the smallest children can get up close to the new additions with our full length windows, making it a perfect exhibit for all ages.
The exhibit is themed around Grytviken, an abandoned whaling port in South Georgia, which in 1966 was abandoned and the ruins taken over by Gentoo penguins.
Their new home will be kept at a chilly 10°C and has some exciting features which will help mimic the penguin's natural habitat including a snow machine and water sprinklers. They will be hand fed two or three times a day by our team of experts on small fish like Blue Whiting and Herring and will also get to enjoy some 'fun foods' such as fish ice lollies.
And don't forget, as well as seeing our new arrivals, The Deep is also home to over 3,500 fish including spectacular sharks and rays. Journey from the birth of the oceans into the future and come face to face with hundreds of exotic species.
Don't miss The Deep's dive show every day at 2pm (please ask a guide for the days location on arrival). See our divers go into the tanks and feed our animals - it's not to be missed! Enjoy getting up close with some of our smaller animals at Discovery Corner as well as seeing our Scatter Feeds at the Lagoon of Light.
Finish off your visit with a stop in our brand new sea themed soft play area; perfect for letting the little ones burn off some steam.
And lastly, enjoy a walk through Europe's deepest viewing tunnel and ride through the 10m tank in our famous glass lift.
PAY ONCE AND VISIT FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR FOR FREE - with The Deep's Day Plus Pass. To find out more, visit www.thedeep.co.uk/ticket.
*Please note the four juveniles will not be at The Deep when we open the exhibit. They are too young to fly and will be joining us shortly.

can someone tell me how long is needed to see the whole attraction?

15 Feb 2013 Reply in response from the above comment from The Deep.....
Yes we are still open 10am-6pm (last entry at 5pm) every day except Christmas Eve and Christmas day. On average it takes about 2 hrs to go around the attraction.

Yes it is still open, and it is hulls main attraction, I have been a few times and although I find the information boring i never tire of the huge tank and seeing the different fish. There is lots to do if you have children including a "petting zoo" where you can touch things like crabs etc. I would suggest going around this time of year as I think summer holidays gets really busy and it can be a bit difficult and tedious to get around. I think the last comment was from last year as the deep actually have their own website which can provide better information. It comes up on google. :-)

Edit by Admin: There is link to their website top of this page, where it says Website

Is this place still open? It's kind of sad that it's been almost a year since the last comment.....Not usually a good sign about the popularity of an attraction!

I really want to visit the deep because it sounds very good.I have seen the pictures and would really like to go and look at the sharks.

I love this site because after watching it I went to the deep and loved it

I loved it to bits, even though i think they shoukd have more endangered animals. then if people need do some homework on it they could get some good information on endangered animals.
