Deep Dive Dubai is a bucket list-worthy experience and if you love being in the water, you might want to consider adding it to your list. The facility is worthy of its name because, at 60.02 m deep, the Guinness World Records awarded it the title of the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving.
This unique diving facility in Nad Al Sheba, Dubai is like no other because it’s designed like a sunken city. Imagine yourself exploring abandoned streets and apartments. The concept of a post-apocalyptic urban ruin gives the ‘Sunken City’ a mysterious and eerie vibe.
Safety is the top priority at Deep Dive Dubai. There are a number of safety features in place to protect divers, including a team of certified dive instructors, an underwater communication system, and a state-of-the-art filtration system. It is also equipped with a 12-person hyperbaric chamber in case of an emergency.
It’s perfect for both beginners and experienced divers. Deep Dive Dubai is also ideal for freedivers. If you’re a beginner, this pool is a perfect training platform for you. If you can’t swim or you’re worried that you’re not a strong swimmer, don’t worry because you can snorkel or book a try dive.
Non-diving visitors are also welcome. Visitors can enjoy snacks, coffee, juices, and other treats at the cafe while watching divers through the large windows or monitors displaying live videos from different parts of the pool.
