Stuck for indoor, family-friendly activities this February half-term? No need to get your ‘flippers’ in a twist; come to The Deep in Hull, keep warm and enjoy a celebration of all things penguin!


From the 10th to the 18th February, join The Deep for some BRRR-illiant fun during their Flippin’ Marvellous February half-term event. If you love The Deep’s cheeky colony of Gentoo penguins, this is an unmissable opportunity to discover more about their individual personalities.


With three different viewing levels around the aquarium, The Deep’s Gentoo penguins will certainly be in the spotlight this half-term. As the world’s fastest swimming penguin, reaching speeds of up to 22 miles per hour, gaze through their underwater viewing window as they dive right in front of your eyes! Plus, ‘catch’ the 11:30am and 3:30pm penguin talks at the Kingdom of Ice exhibit, with a chance to see the penguins feeding. 


There will be daily presentations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm jam-packed with fun facts and information, with plenty of chance to get involved in interactive activities and test your knowledge!

P-p-pick up a trail sheet and complete The Deep’s penguin trail for the chance to win an exciting prize bundle.

Take home your own personalised, decorated pebble and gift to a loved one- just like a penguin would!


What’s more, every standard entry ticket that you purchase for your visit is an Annual Pass, allowing FREE unlimited returns to The Deep for a full 12 months! That’s right, pay for a day and visit FREE for a full year! So you can keep them in mind for a guaranteed family-friendly day out all year round, covering events at every school holiday and as your first port-of-call when it rains.


Booking is highly recommended for entry to The Deep during February half-term.

‘Sea’ you soon!
