Runs 20th July – 1st September 2019. It’s going to be a turtle-y awesome summer here at The Deep, so make sure you don’t miss out!

Get hands on in our very own ‘turtle hospital’ where youngsters can get up close with a giant turtle (a cuddly one, of course) and find out what it takes to look after our flipper-ed friends. Learn all about turtle anatomy and even help the team carry out a turtle health check. Inspect their eyes, nose and mouth, as well as checking their flippers and shell then report back to us on your vet examination form.

Take part in the turtle trail and find out about more about the species that live all around the world and the challenges they face. Enjoy interactive presentations from our guiding team at 11am, 1pm and 3pm and get your face painted in Craft Corner from 11am to 4pm.
