The deepest dive

The world’s deepest dive pool and underwater attraction has opened in Dubai, with a post-apocalyptic submerged city for divers to explore. Tom Walker takes a look


With a depth of 60 metres, Deep Dive Dubai has been certified by the Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest pool, but the team behind the new attraction always wanted to create more than just a very deep swimming pool. Instead, they wanted to create an exciting underwater attraction that would operate as a destination, with a restaurant, viewing windows and large screens displaying the feed from 56 underwater cameras, allowing visitors to see the divers exploring the underwater world.

The design team has created a 1,500sqm attraction themed around an underwater abandoned sunken city, featuring lampposts, shopping carts, bicycles, billboards, ATMs and a large tree. Divers explore the underwater sets, including an underwater apartment complete with artwork, furniture and toys and a garage with cars and motorbikes, and they can attempt to play pool and pinball 38 metres down.

The pool also features two underwater habitats – at 6m and 21m – that allows divers to surface inside a dry air space and talk to one another or communicate with a surface tender station.

The pool is filled with 14 million litres of fresh water (the equivalent of six Olympic-sized swimming pools), which is kept at 30 degrees. A variety of scuba and freediving courses are offered, aimed at beginners through to professional divers and athletes.

The building’s exterior was inspired by an oyster shell – in reference to Dubai’s pearl diving heritage. An 80 cover restaurant is due to open in late 2021, with large glass windows that will allow diners to view divers exploring the underwater world.

Located in Nad Al Sheba – 15 minutes from Downtown Dubai and 25 minutes from Dubai International Airport, Deep Dive Dubai is currently open by invitation only, and will open fully to the public later this year.

“For those seeking a unique experience, Deep Dive Dubai provides an exceptional, safe and controlled environment to learn all about diving,” says Jarrod Jablonski, a record setting cave diver and the director of the facility. “For experienced members of the freedive and scuba dive communities, it’s a facility and experience like no other.”
