The world’s deepest swimming pool, known as Deep Dive Dubai, is set to open to the public on July 28, 2021.
Located in the Nad Al Sheba neighborhood of Dubai, the facility was opened by the crown prince of Dubai, who was one of the first visitors to the pool.
The 60-meter-deep pool was constructed by Binladin Contracting Group and holds 14 million liters of water. It set the Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving, overthrowing Poland’s Deepspot with a depth of over 45 meters.
The Deep Dive Dubai is shaped like a giant oyster and is spread across an area of 1,500 m². The facility has two underwater habitats, 56 underwater cameras with 164 lights, and a sound and mood lighting system.
The pool includes the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber along with a sunken city for divers to explore. It has a NASA-developed technology that allows freshwater to be filtered and circulated every six hours through siliceous volcanic rock.
People can enjoy scuba diving and freediving along with foosball and a chess table inside the pool. Visitors can watch their family and friends on large windows or screens as they drive through the water.
The Deep Dive Dubai has the capacity to host events with up to 100 guests with onsite catering options. It also has a restaurant, dive shop, and gift shop.
