A stunning new swimming pool in Dubai’s Nad Al Sheba neighborhood is sending the internet into a frenzy after earning a Guinness World Record for the deepest of its kind.
Deep Dive Dubai, the latest entrant in the Guinness World Records and to the city’s line-up of tourist attractions, boasts of a 60-metre swimming pool playing host to a number of cool features like an abandoned streetscape, an apartment, garage, and an arcade. The best part, the entire pool is equipped with 56 underwater cameras covering almost every angle of the pool, in addition to advanced sound and mood lighting systems.
Check out this jaw-dropping video Dubai’s Crown Prince, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum shared introducing Deep Dive Dubai on Instagram:
“Deep Dive Dubai allows thrill-seekers to dive inwards and discover a new underwater dimension filled with adventure and wonder. We offer an unparalleled experience with year-round diving, in a safe environment, with outstanding instructors and services. This facility is an investment in Dubai’s growing sports culture and will add another world-class destination to Dubai’s thriving tourism and adventure sports sector.”Abdulla bin Habtoor, spokesperson of Deep Dive Dubai
Fun fact: With a record-breaking 60 metres-deep swimming pool, Deep Dive Dubai is the equivalent of six Olympic-sized swimming pools.
As of now, Deep Dive Dubai is open to select invitees. The adrenaline-filled attraction will be open to bookings by the end of this month through their official website, deepdivedubai.com. You don’t necessarily have to be a pro at scuba diving to enjoy what’s on offer, as they’re open to people of all abilities aged ten and above.
