Dubai has made its feat with the having the world’s tallest building, the. Burj Khalifa. Now, the country has decided to awe the world with Deep Dive Dubai, the deepest swimming pool in the world.
Deep Dive Dubai prides itself as “the only diving facility in the world”, where you can go down 60 metres, which are 15 metres deeper than any other pool. It contains 14.6 million litres of fresh water, which are equivalent to six Olympic-size swimming pools. The pool is also equipped with more than 50 cameras for safety and entertainment purposes.
There more to the pool than just diving, guided down by lights and ambient music, divers can play table football and other games at the bottom as well as explore an “abandoned sunken city” or just to take in the vegetation along the way.
The oyster-shaped structure pays tribute to the pearl-diving tradition of the United Arab Emirates, of which Dubai is a member, explained Deep Dive Dubai’s director Jarrod Jablonski, an expat from Florida in the United States.
An hour dive costs between $135 and $410, and Deep Dive said the pool will be open to public soon, whereas one of its first guest to have a taste of the pool is the crown prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. A video of him diving in the pool was posted on his social media.
