Dubai has opened the largest diving pool in the world
Dubai is known for its stunning sights and now, with the opening of Deep Dive Dubai, it can add a world record to its list of achievements. As the deepest swimming pool in the world, Deep Dive Dubai has a “sunken city” at 14 million liters of water.
The amount of water in the pool fills 6 Olympic pools and, with a depth of 60 meters, is four times larger than its nearest competitor. It contains a revealing sunken city for divers to explore, which opens before divers’ eyes as they dive deeper into the pool. The idea is that nature has slowly taken over this forgotten city, with shop windows, houses, cars and electronic games slowly eroding.
Along the way, there are two diving areas that allow divers to relax and chat. This unique feature of Deep Dive Dubai is a dry air area where divers can even remove their equipment and get completely out of the water. Developed as a world-class destination for divers, there are options for everyone. Both beginners and experienced divers can enjoy the experience, and there is also a comprehensive development program for those wishing to improve their skills.
The facility’s director, Jarrod Jablonski, is a world-record cave diver and is proud of Deep Dive Dubai’s commitment to safety and best practices. “From its design, Deep Dive Dubai offers something truly unique for everyone and our team is committed to providing an unforgettable experience, with great service, for everyone, every time,” says Jablonski. “For those looking for a unique experience, Deep Dive Dubai offers a great, safe and controlled environment to learn all about diving. For the experienced members of the diving community (free and not), it is an installation and an experience that is not comparable to any other “.
Deep Dive Dubai also operates as an underwater movie studio, with a multimedia processing room, special background, 56 underwater cameras and the ability to create different conditions with 164 lights placed throughout the pool. And as if that weren’t enough, the exterior of Deep Dive Dubai is just as impressive as its interior. Designed to mimic a giant oyster, the entire building is a commentary on the UAE heritage for diving in search of pearls.
Deep Dive Dubai is open for bookings, and the public can book snorkeling, scuba diving and scuba diving experiences. Here is a short video that reveals how unique the experience is offered to diving enthusiasts.
