Have you always wanted to dive into the deepest pool in the world? You can do that in Dubai in Deep Dive Dubai. With a depth of 60 meters and 14 million liters of water (this is equivalent to 6 Olympic-sized swimming pools), the pool of Deep Dive Dubai has been officially the deepest pool in the world since July 2021 according to the Guinness World Record Book.
In the pool you will not find fish, coral reefs or other underwater animals. The pool is built purely for entertainment, to train or to get acquainted with diving in a safe environment. The fire brigade and the army regularly train in the swimming pool. Freedivers who dive without oxygen cylinders can also train in the safe environment of the pool.
Unique underwater world
If you take a dip in the huge swimming pool, you will not be bored. The pool was built as an abandoned underwater city where you can enjoy yourself for hours. The swimming pool consists of several rooms that you can discover. You can play water table football, telephone or play chess. There are two underwater chambers hidden in the pool at a depth of 6 or 21 meters, here you can surface thanks to the large artificial air bubble that has been created. These special underwater chambers are ideal for relaxing without having to breathe through your diving equipment.
56 underwater cameras capture everything, and the pool has an advanced sound and light system to make every dive unique. The water in the pool is continuously heated to 30 degrees and is filtered every 6 hours with unique filters developed by NASA.
