Guinness World Records has verified Deep Dive Dubai, located in the city’s Nad Al Sheba neighborhood, as the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving, according to the WAM report.
The diving pool has bragging rights to the latest technology and unrivalled facilities, including what will be the region’s most advanced hyperbaric chamber, an astonishing sunken city that divers of all levels can explore, complete with an abandoned streetscape and featuring an apartment, garage, and arcade.
Freediving and scuba diving experiences and courses are offered to all ability levels by a team of international diving professionals.
Among the features of the 60m pool are two underwater habitats with a dry chamber at six and 21 meters, 56 underwater cameras covering all angles of the pool, as well as advanced sound and mood lighting systems, WAM said.
