Did you know that the deepest pool in the world has been opened several days ago? It is 60 meters deep, filled with 14 million liters of fresh water. It is at least four times bigger than any other diving pool in the world and features a sunken city. Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel to dive right in?
You are all very smart. It is indeed in Dubai.
Deep Dive Dubai opened the pool in July to divers and thrill-seeking tourists. The 196 feet and 10 inch deep pool (60.02 meters) was verified by the Guinness World Records as the deepest pool for diving in the world — beating out former recorded holder Deep Spot in Poland by nearly 50 feet.
A sunken city and an underwater film studio
The indoor pool is housed inside a 1,500-square-meter oyster-shaped structure, a nod to the United Arab Emirates’ history as a pearl diving nation.
But the biggest star of Deep Dive Dubai is arguably the pool’s underwater city. Divers can explore “abandoned” sunken city apartments and play underwater pool in the arcade. State-of-the-art lighting and sound systems have been fitted inside the pool to create different atmospheres.
The pool also doubles as an underwater film studio — the largest of its kind in the region. A media editing room is available nearby in the facility.
Deep Dive Dubai offers courses for both diving beginners and certified divers. Divers can also explore the pool and the underwater city by themselves after a tour with one of the dive guides at the site.
Some 56 cameras have been installed around the pool to ensure the safety of divers at every corner. It also has the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber — with a capacity of 12 people — in case of an emergency.
What an amazing place to include when you next travel to Dubai!
