Dubai has always been proud of creating infrastructural wonders, such as the largest skyscraper on earth, as well as the biggest mall. It has yet again outdone itself by introducing the world’s deepest diving pool recently.
What Does The Diving Pool Include?
The pool contains almost as much as 3.7 million gallons or 14 million liters of freshwater. It is over 196 feet deep and over 37 times as tall as an average human being. Deep Dive Dubai claims that the amount of water it can hold is equal to 6 Olympic-sized swimming pools. The temperature of the water would be 86 degrees.
Deep Dive Dubai also mentioned that the pool includes a post-apocalyptic abandoned “sunken city” feature. It has been modeled on the grounds of different city settings such as lampposts, shopfronts, and benches. When swimmers dive down even deeper, they would even be able to witness a flat with a bedroom, kitchen, dining room, and even a garage holding cars, motorbikes, arcade games, and a billiards table.
Within the pool, there are 56 underwater cameras surrounding its area for safety reasons. There is also a sound system to engage in communication with the divers and to produce underwater soundscapes. The water will be put through a sophisticated filter after every 6 hours to ensure maximum hygiene.
Diving professionals and qualified scuba, as well as freedivers, will be present to provide guidance, tips, and training on complex diving methods. They will also help the swimmers manage their diving paraphernalia. There is an option for visitors to watch the divers in action through the large windows or the screens set everywhere on the site. The place includes a restaurant and gift shop as well.
A Little Bit Of Background About The Pool:
A specifically selected group of global diving experts are in charge of the pool. They have been equipped with the most modern technology for this task. The director of the center said in a video that the pool offers everything to its users, whether they are looking to have their very first diving experience or are want to build more expertise in the area. It is fully staffed with a 12-person hyperbaric system for the safety of the divers.
On the 29th of June, it was been confirmed by the Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving. Prior to this, the record was held by Poland’s 147 ft deep pool called DeepSpot. Because of the temperature settings in the pool, divers are not required to wear thick jumpsuits.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai, was among the first to visit the pool. A social media post with a recording of him plunging into the pool circulated recently. At the moment, only specially invited guests are allowed to visit the pool. Later this year, it will be open to the general community as well.
The director welcomes everyone to make the best of their consistent state of perfection and ‘crystal clear’ water. According to Deep Dive Dubai’s official website, the 60-meter world record-breaking pool will take its swimmers to a whole new dimension, creating possibilities of adventure and wonder.
