Deep Dive Dubai, which features the deepest swimming pool for diving in the world, has opened in the emirate.

On Wednesday, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, opened the attraction that has a depth of 60 metres.

Located in Dubai’s Nad Al Sheba neighbourhood, Deep Dive Dubai’s pool has been officially verified by Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest swimming pool.

It holds 14 million litres of water, the equivalent of six Olympic-sized swimming pools.

It includes the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber, and features a sunken city – including an apartment, garage and arcade – that divers of all levels can explore.

The pool has two underwater habitats with a dry chamber at 6 and 21 meters, and it also has 56 underwater cameras covering all angles of the pool, as well as sound and mood lighting systems.

Apart from being the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving, Deep Dive Dubai is also the region’s largest underwater film studio, complete with a media editing room, a video wall, 56 underwater cameras and the ability to create different moods with 164 lights positioned throughout the pool.

With capacity to hold events for up to 100 people and onsite catering options, it is also being positioned as a MICE venue.

The pool’s fresh water is filtered and circulated every six hours through siliceous volcanic rock, NASA-developed filter technology and UV radiation, according to Dubai Media Office.

Currently open by invitation only with public bookings to open in late July via its website, Deep Dive Dubai’s guided experiences and courses are offered across three categories: Discover, Dive and Develop. They are open to both residents and visitors aged 10 and over, ranging from complete beginners through to professional divers and athletes.

The Discover category caters to those who want to try a single dive or take their first steps towards certification as a diver. The Dive category allows everyone to dive within their certification limits. The Develop category meanwhile is for training to both develop skills and gain scuba diving and freediving certifications – ranging from entry-level to technical and instructor-level. Freediving and scuba diving experiences and courses are offered to all ability levels by a team of international diving professionals.

“Deep Dive Dubai offers something truly unique for everyone and our team is committed to ensuring a memorable experience, with outstanding service. For those seeking a unique experience, Deep Dive Dubai provides an exceptional, safe and controlled environment to learn all about diving,” said Deep Dive Dubai’s director Jarrod Jablonski, a world record-holding cave diver.

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