Deep Dive Dubai: The world’s deepest pool is now open

With a staggering depth of 60 meters, the pool, which is part of the new Deep Dive Dubai attraction, has stolen the plate from Poland’s Deepspot, which has a depth of over 45 meters.
The Deep Dive Dubai pool is filled with 14 million liters of fresh water – the volume of six Olympic-sized swimming pools – and is at least four times larger than any other diving pool in the world. Guinness awarded it the title of “Deepest Swimming Pool for Diving”
; on June 27th.

The water temperature is kept at 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit), a comfortable temperature to wear a thin wetsuit or a bathing suit.

The facility offers both diving and free diving.

An immersed city and an underwater movie studio

The indoor pool is housed in an oyster-shaped structure of 1,500 square meters, a nod to the history of the United Arab Emirates as a pearl diving nation.

But the biggest star in Deep Dive Dubai is without a doubt the pool’s underwater city. Divers can explore “abandoned” sunken city apartments and play underwater pool in the arcade. The pool is equipped with advanced lighting and sound systems to create different atmospheres.

The pool also serves 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 underwater town alone after a trip with one of the on-site diving guides.

56 cameras have been installed around the pool to ensure the safety of divers in every corner. It also has the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber – with a capacity of 12 people – in case of an emergency.

“There are a lot of diving pools in the world that are deep, but this one is so much more interesting,” Deep Dive Dubai director Jarrod Jablonski told CNN. “It is not only the deepest and greatest, but the sunken city effect makes it the next world order.

“There are so many things that it really is not fair to call it a pool.”

Do not visit the top of the Burj Khalifa right after Deep Dive Dubai

The diving complex also has a restaurant equipped with large windows and TV screens so that families and friends who do not dive can watch from dry land.

And if you forget how deep the pool is, Deep Dive Dubai has posted a message on its website for those planning to visit the city’s famous Burj Khalifa afterwards.

“Do not visit the top of the skyscraper after diving,” it says.

“After a dive, it is recommended to wait 18-24 hours before ascending over 300 meters. However, there is no risk of diving after visiting the tallest building in the world.”
