Easter Holiday Fun

Friday 3rd April 2015  – Sunday 19th April 2015

A fearless Easter Bunny is taking the plunge at Deep Sea World, Scotland’s national aquarium, over the Easter holiday weekend (starting April 3rd) – in search of shark eggs!

The diving bunny – complete with floppy ears and basket – is exploring the depths of the North Queensferry aquarium’s 4.5 million litre Underwater Safari for shark and ray egg-cases as well as helping out with fish feeds.

Young visitors will also be able to take part in a fun Easter Egg Hunt around the aquarium, there is an Easter ‘Grotto’ with a selection of children’s activities on offer, as well as face painting, and additional talks and feeding demonstrations.

The Diving Bunny is just the first of the Easter Fun Frolics planned at Deep Sea World. They are also hosting their famous Mermaid event with previews on the evening of Thursday 9th April followed by Mermaid dives throughout the weekend of  the 11th and 12th April with special photo opportunities at the rock pool with the real life mermaid herself!!
