Deep Dive Dubai: Deepest diving swimming pool in the world launched


Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, on Wednesday opened Deep Dive Dubai, the home of the deepest swimming pool for diving in the world.

Located in Dubai’s Nad Al Sheba neighbourhood, Deep Dive Dubai’s pool has been verified by Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving at an incredible depth of over 60 metres and holding 14 million litres of water, the equivalent of six Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Featuring the latest technology and unrivalled facilities, including what will be the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber, Deep Dive Dubai’s pool also features an astonishing sunken city that divers of all levels can explore, complete with an abandoned streetscape and featuring an apartment, garage, and arcade. Freediving and scuba diving experiences and courses are offered to all ability levels by a team of international diving professionals.

Among the features of the 60m pool are two underwater habitats with a dry chamber at six and 21 meters, 56 underwater cameras covering all angles of the pool, as well as advanced sound and mood lighting systems. The pool’s fresh water is filtered and circulated every six hours through siliceous volcanic rock, NASA-developed filter technology and UV radiation in one of the largest and fastest filter systems in the region.

The 1,500sqm facility is shaped like a giant oyster in a nod to the UAE’s pearl diving heritage.
