Dubai Unveils World’s Deepest Pool With Underwater City And Exploration Caves

As if having the world’s tallest building isn’t impressive enough, Dubai also now holds the Guinness World Record for “deepest swimming pool for diving”. At 60m deep, Deep Dive Dubai is almost 15m deeper than the previous record holder – the Deepspot in Poland.

The attraction comes with a system of caves and a unique underwater metropolis which divers can explore like the Lost City of Atlantis. And don’t worry if you’re not a good diver because the Deep Dive also offers various courses and guided tours for visitors of all experience levels.

Moreover, visitors can rest assured knowing that the Deep Dive boasts a good set of safety features. For starters, the pool actually comes with 56 cameras, as well as the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber, which can hold up to 12 people at a time in the event of an emergency.

While the Deep Dive maintains the water temperature at a comfortable 30ºC, swimmers are still required to wear a thin wetsuit instead of their usual swimwear when diving in the pool. Just ask American actor Will Smith, who recently posted a video of his experience diving in the world’s deepest pool.

For now, the attraction is only accessible by invitation but visitors can expect the pool to open its doors to the general public later this year. Hopefully, when the pandemic is over, we’ll be able to take a dip in the world’s deepest pool and experience life as a mermaid.

Just remember not to travel the world’s tallest building after your dive, but it’s perfectly fine to take a dive after seeing the clouds. Though as a general guide, it’s recommended for visitors of the Deep Dive to wait 18 to 24 hours before ascending higher than 300 meters.
