The World’s Deepest Swimming Pool Opens in Dubai
Early this year the world’s first sky pool opened in London, now we have the world’s deepest pool. Plunging to a depth of over 196 feet, Deep Dive Dubai has been officially certified by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s deepest pool for diving.
Located in the Nad Al Sheba neighborhood, the monstrous pool holds 14 million liters of warm water and is inspired by the United Arab Emirates’ rich pearl-diving heritage of the past. The equivalent of six Olympic-sized swimming pools, Deep Dive Dubai is an underwater oasis with several different areas to explore.
The sunken city contains an apartment, garage, and arcade area to explore, with a working foosball table also on offer for those who want to play a bit of one on one with their dive partner. Deep Dive Dubai claims it takes several dives to discover everything the pool has to offer, with a state-of-the-art lighting and sound system adding to the underwater atmosphere.
The pool also doubles as a film studio – the largest of its kind in the UEA – and contains an editing suite at a nearby facility.
Freediving and scuba experiences are offered along with beginner courses, while 56 cameras have been installed throughout the pool to keep divers safe. There’s even a 12 person hyperbaric chamber in case of an emergency.
The pool uses NASA-developed filter technology and UV radiation to filter the pool’s freshwater every six hours through siliceous volcanic rock. The pool has an optimal water temperature of 30 degrees Celsius while numerous large windows allow people to observe what’s happening in the pool.
At this stage, Deep Dive Dubai is only open via invitation, with the crown prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, one of the first to experience the dive pool.
Booking will open to the public in late July. Visit Deep Dive Dubai for more information.
