Dubai’s love for the tallest, biggest, deepest, and largest never fails to amaze and impress us. Creating surreal attractions and facilities where one cannot deem it to exist, the city turns itself into a major wonderland for tourists and residents alike. Among the crammed list, now the city boasts to insert another feather in the foam of Deep Dive Dubai.
Deep dive pools are common attractions around the world. Be it natural or human-made, such pools always attract divers. However, to fascinate divers both professionals and armatures, and thrill, edify, and amaze both the groups alike isn’t very common. Deep Dive Dubai is an indoor diving facility that provides so many compelling reasons to visit.
When the proposed idea for a 60-meter pool was given a Dubai-touch; Deep Dive Dubai emerged as not just the deepest but one of the most extraordinary deep dive pools in the world.
About Deep Dive Dubai
With the world’s deepest pool, at a depth of 60 meters, Deep Dive Dubai provides the opportunity to discover an underwater world filled with adventure and wonder. The facility spans 1,500 square meters and features the latest technology, unrivaled MICE, and filming facilities.
The interior includes a Reception, Pool Deck, Pool, Changing rooms, Prayer Rooms, MICE Facilities, a Dive/Gift Shop, Restaurant, Control Centre, Filtration System, Hyperbaric Chamber, and Offices.
Initiation And Design
A 60-meter-deep dive pool is no big deal. To make such an endeavor the most exciting experience worthy of Dubai is challenging. Especially with the likes of Eye of Dubai, indoor ski slope, not to mention the Burj Khalifa around, a matching effort was in demand. To indulge the visitors in a sense of fun, intrigue, and fantasy, a unique interior and exterior were needed.
With an eye to the tradition and history of the city, Deep Dive Dubai was designed in the shape of an oyster. Further embellishing the interior with the interweaving ideas of a sunken Spaceship and Metropolis providing a surreal diving environment.
One of the highlights of Deep Dive Dubai is sharing your diving experience with a non-diving friend or loved one on ‘the other side. From the surface down to 12 meters, viewers can watch divers traverse the first two floors of their adventure below the dive deck. Visiting divers’ friends and family can also enjoy a delicious meal or fine refreshments in the spacious restaurant while they relax and enjoy the view inside the pool through vast glass windows.

Safety and security hold the predominant place at Deep Dive Dubai. The cameras covering all angles of the huge body of water ensure a safe experience. Deep Dive Dubai also provides ideal diving gases to optimize safety: nitrox for shallow dives and trimix for deeper dives.
