The Deep announces plans for reopening

The Deep has finally announced plans to reopen next week on Monday 17 May, with a number of new rules in place for visitors.

The Hull attraction has spent much of the last year closed to the public.

A statement issued via the website reads:

“We are excited to announce that we will be opening our doors on Monday 17 May.

“After a difficult year we are ready to welcome everyone back reconnect with the amazing species who call The Deep home and enjoy a fintastic day out.

“Our crew have been working hard to prepare for reopening and welcoming everyone back, so here is a reminder of how things will work to ensure we adhere to current Government guidelines:

“All visitors will need to book a date and a time slot for their visit, this includes Day Plus Pass holders.

“The Deep will be extending all valid Day Plus Passes by the amount of time the aquarium has been closed by.

“This includes passes from the first closure in March 2020.”

A number of measures have been put in place to keep staff and visitors safe.

Visitor numbers will be limited with staggered time slots – all tickets must be booked in advance.

A one-way system has also been introduced, and face coverings are mandatory.

Events such as feeds, touch pools and dive shows will all be suspended for now to avoid overcrowding. The play area is also closed.

The Deep will be open between 10am and 6pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 6pm at weekends and holidays.
